Congratulations to Kathrin Colgan, Chisholm Institute for reaching finalist status in the Excellence in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice category of the Australian Training Awards.

Kathrin was one of a team from Chisholm who spoke at the 2017 VALBEC Conference and she is also presenting at the 2017 ACAL Conference.

Kathrin has been teaching LLN for 20 years through VET in industry, language and literacy classrooms and remotely. She says ‘I have recently been interested in and working with LLN industry projects, curriculum projects for indigenous groups, and using digital solutions to address problems and complications for LLN teachers of multigroups. I am passionate about the LLN student, but equally of the LLN professional’.

Kathrin added. “The wonderful thing about the VET sector is that allows so many opportunities for students and teachers.”

Winners are announced in November 2017.
