Abe Archibald honoured at national awards

27 November 2017

College of Business and Economics (CBE) trainee Infrastructure Officer, Abe Archibald, has been named runner up for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the 2017 Australian Training Awards. https://www.australiantrainingawards.gov.au/finalists/abe-archibald

Earlier in the year, Abe won the ACT award, which put him in the running for the national award.

The award recognises Abe's achievements as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander trainee and his commitment to lifelong learning for himself and his community.

Abe joined the Australian National University (ANU) in 2016 as an administrator in the Human Resources (HR) team on a one year traineeship under the ANU College Business and Economics' Indigenous Trainee Program, run in partnership with the Australian Training ATC.

When asked about what this award mean to him, Abe was keen to highlight the opportunity he had to now use his experience to encourage others in his community.

"I'm quite honoured to be recognised for this award and I couldn't have achieved this without the support of the CBE HR and Infrastructure teams and the college as a whole" he said.

"The award will be a very helpful tool to help me encourage others to undertake vocational education and training."

CBE General Manager, Yana Potrebica, said the college was delighted Abe was recognised as the winner in the ACT and runner up at the National Awards.

"Congratulations to Abe on this incredibly deserving recognition," said Ms Potrebica.

"Not only is he capable and hardworking, Abe's can-do attitude makes him an absolute pleasure to work with."

The 2017 Australian Training Awards was held in Canberra on 24 November.
