Abe Archibald wins 2017 ACT Training Award

4 September 2017

College of Business and Economics (CBE) trainee Infrastructure Officer, Abe Archibald, has been named ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the 2017 ACT Training Awards.

The award recognises the achievement of an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander student, trainee or apprentice who displays a strong understanding and knowledge of the VET system and demonstrates the relevance of lifelong learning for themselves and their 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.

Abe wrote a thankyou speech to be prepared, but was certain he wouldn't need to use it.

"I’m quite honoured to receive 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.

“Undertaking the leadership course as part of winning 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 announced as the winner in the ACT Training 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.”.

As the winner Abe will receive $2,000 prize money and represent the ACT at the Australian Training Awards in November.

The 2017 ACT Training Awards was held at the QT hotel, Canberra City on the 31 August.
