|Outstanding response to Bondor TAFE SA TAFE National Scholarships Prizes
A new TAFE National Scholarships initiative sponsored by Bondor and administered by TAFE SA attracted over 40 applications, of which 18 were awarded the prizes.
Students studying Work Health and Safety (WHS) as part of their TAFE SA course were encouraged to apply for prizes valued at $500 each.
To be successful in their applications, students needed to demonstrate their understanding of the importance of WHS practices in the workplace and to illustrate themselves applying such practices appropriate to their career and course of study. Only the best responses were considered.
Bondor was keen to sponsor these prizes to reinforce its commitment to safety training to the construction industry with a focus in South Australia due to the number of projects it has in that state.
