Council’s champion childcare trainee

Gosford City Council’s Childcare Trainee, Ebony Bruns, has been named one of the Trainees of the Year at the 2012 Central Coast Training Awards.

The Awards recognise exceptional trainees from different Registered Training Organisations across a variety of disciplines.
Ms Bruns, who was nominated as a trainee completing Certificate III in Children’s Services, participated in an interview process with the Awards Committee before being short-listed as one of five finalists.

Gosford City Council’s Team Leader Child and Family Services, Ms Kylie Payne said that this award highlights the calibre of childcare workers employed at Gosford City Council.

“The Central Coast Training Awards provide a great opportunity to acknowledge and reward these trainees, like Ebony, who have excelled in their chosen fields.

“Ebony has exhibited outstanding dedication and motivation to early childhood education since commencing her traineeship at Council’s Michael Burns Childcare Centre in 2010.

“Traineeships are an opportunity for Council to invest in our future while also being committed to the ongoing training and development of our staff.
“We are all very proud of Ebony and look forward to seeing her success continue well into the future,” Ms Payne said.
