Lyn Wilson has extensive experience in successfully delivering a highly diverse range of language, literacy and numeracy programs in New South Wales.
For over 20 years, Lyn has managed the Sydney TAFE - Petersham College Foundation Studies section, historically one of the largest adult basic education units within TAFE NSW. The section is known for its outstanding links with industry and its successful delivery of foundation skills and pre-employment programs. This success is largely due to Lyn’s ability to establish and maintain the loyalty and support of a large committed staff, as well as valued relationships with external stakeholders.
Since 2004, Lyn has worked collaboratively with industry to address the challenges experienced by business and organisations in developing their Indigenous employment strategies, particularly with regard to language, literacy, and numeracy skills. Lyn’s model of good practice, and designs of Indigenous pre-employment and other training programs, have been the key to the significant number of employment outcomes achieved for Aboriginal people in Sydney.
