TCC Hospitality Trainer, Barry Pawsey, named finalist at 2023 CCA Trainer of the Year Awards.

Last night we were honoured to attend the Community Colleges Australia Trainer of the Year Awards for our very own finalist Barry Pawsey!

Although the top spot eluded us this time, being a finalist in the Trainer of the Year Awards 2023 is a monumental achievement we’re incredibly proud of!

Barry is a Trainer and Assessor in Commercial Cookery, Commercial Patisserie and Hospitality units of competence at Tamworth Community College. He has conducted training at New England Community College Inverell, Guyra and Armidale in their Simulated Workplace environments and taught at TAFENSW for over 20 years.

Most recently Barry has been involved in teaching and assessing the Pathways Program for Years 9, 10 and 11. This program was developed by the Department for students not likely to complete School and who are struggling to stay engaged. Barry comments: “I am passionate about assisting young learners into developing skills both socially and educationally to better their lives and become an active part of the community from a young age.”

Barry Pawsey, you are our star, showing the path of excellence and student success at TCC. Thank you to the community and our wonderful students for journeying with us.
