Murraylands succeeding at SA Training Awards

Member for Hammond, Adrian Pederick, was again overwhelmingly pleased with the success of the Murraylands region at the recent SA Training Awards.

“The Murraylands Food Alliance (MFA) Jobs 4 Murraylands program again showed its success at the SA Training Awards, winning the Industry Collaboration Award,” said Mr Pederick.

“The Industry Collaboration Award recognises outstanding collaboration with at least one employer or industry body. The MFA Jobs 4 Murraylands program was a well deserving recipient, after successfully collaborating with over 50 industry stakeholders or employers.

“Sandy Beaton who is undertaking a Traineeship with the Rural City of Murray Bridge (RCMB) was named the 2017 Trainee of the Year.

“Sandy has progressed her knowledge in business and administration throughout her Traineeship, whilst demonstrating exceptional organisational and communication skills.

“The School-based Apprentice of the Year was also awarded to a Murraylands based receipt, Max Miegel. Max’s passion for agriculture is evident through his commitment to the industry. It is inspiring to see Max’s dedication to an industry that is a vital part of our state and country.

“Max was successful on another occasion at the SA Training Awards, after being awarded the People’s Choice Award. This award is based on an online vote, for the public’s favourite individual SA Training Awards finalist.

“The evening was filled with excitement and celebration for our region and the recipients of the SA Training Awards should be extremely proud. I look forward to hearing of their future successes within their selected industry fields,” said Mr Pederick.
