Vocational Student of the Year

Sponsored by Master Builders Association NT.

Winner: Aimee Williams - Certificate III and IV in Fitness

Employer: ESS Larrakia
Registered training provider: Charles Darwin University

After working in administration for two years Aimee realised she was not motivated by her work and decided to enrol as an external student in the Charles Darwin University (CDU) fitness course.

She resigned from her secure job to take up a placement opportunity with Defence Force PTI team and was offered a job at the YMCA.

On completing her Certificate III in Fitness she received an Outstanding Achievement Award from CDU, which encouraged her to continue her external studies in her Certificate IV in Fitness and Certificate IV in Massage Therapy.

Aimee volunteers with the Australian Naval Cadets, instructing juniors, and also with Total Recreation, working with youth and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. She works at the Howard Springs Accommodation Park as an active life coach and has her own private clients she trains outside her work, study and community commitments.

Her next goal is to complete her Certificate IV in Training and Assessment so she can provide training and support to people with an interest in fitness. Aimee's motto is to never be afraid to go for what you want and know it takes commitment and determination to get there.

Runner up: Patrick Rivers - Certificate  V in Community Services Work
