Through his traineeship with Bundaberg Regional Council, Ben Nedwich has enhanced his professional practices and customer service skills while enrolled in a Certificate III in Business Administration. In his administration officer/ assistant role he has gained an understanding of local government, experienced a diversified workforce and enhanced his career prospects. Ben believes the most efficient way to learn is to undertake a qualification on the job, as the balance of practice and theory provides opportunities to monitor and improve work practices.
In recognition of his commitment to his studies, Ben received Sunrise Rotary’s TAFE Queensland East Coast Trainee/Apprentice of the Year and Overall Student of the Year awards in 2015 and a full sponsorship to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp. His talents won him first place in the WorldSkills Competition Wide Bay Business Section and sponsorship to compete in the WorldSkills National Competition Business Section in Melbourne in October 2016.
