VET Teacher / Trainer of the Year

Winner: Patricia Sweeney Fawcett

Employer: Charles Darwin University

Patricia Sweeney Fawcett is on the learning journey with her students as she strives to be the best teacher she can be.

“My teaching is 100% student centred. I ask myself, ‘how do my choices to deliver and assess training give my students the best possible outcomes?” Patricia said.

Patricia achieved “100% retention, 100% achievement and 100% success” in the three years she was course leader for the Diploma of Beauty Therapy at Charles Darwin University.

Patricia has also led a workforce development project to build capability of other trainers across the NT.
