Sophie takes crown at Victorian Training Awards


GOTAFE school-based trainee, Sophie Babycz was crowned the winner at the recent Victorian Training Awards (VTA) Gala Ceremony in Melbourne.

Based at the Wallan Neighbourhood House, Sophie studied Certificate III in Business with GOTAFE.

Sophie is now getting ready to represent Victoria at the Australian Training Awards later this year.

Engineering Apprentice and 2017 GOTAFE Apprentice of the Year, Matthew Shipard narrowly missed out on the Apprentice of the Year and People’s Choice titles.

A GOTAFE spokesperson said, “GOTAFE would like to like to congratulate Matthew’s trainers, Ralph Scalzo and Greg Keane and all of the hard work being done by the Wangaratta Engineering Department who have produced back-to-back finalists in the Apprentice of the Year category.”
