Top award for Tafe lecturer

CENTRAL Tafe lecturer Charles Dornan has been named the 2008 Trade Skills Teacher of the Year in the mineral resources category, and is one of four finalists for the overall Australian Trades and Skills Teacher of the year prize. Mr Dornan, who lectures in mining and geoscience, will receive $5,000 for the win, $2,000 of which will be put toward a college project in his area. The Institute for Trade Skills Excellence runs the awards as a national partnership between the federal government and Australian business, promoting teaching, learning and training in trades. Central Tafe managing director Neil Fernandes nominated Mr Dornan for the award. “Charles has had a high level [of] impact across the mining sector of Western Australia and in a critical skills area, which also has a national economic impact,” Mr Fernandes said. Earlier this year, Mr Dornan won the Central Tafe staff service award, in recognition of excellence in the field of training. The overall prize for the Australian Trades and Skills Teacher of the Year award will be announced at the Australian Training Awards on November 20 in Darwin
