Media Release - Armidale teacher goes to the top of the class

Staff at the Armidale Campus took time out of their weekly schedules to congratulate their colleague, Christine Maunder, as she was awarded the TAFE New England Monthly Staff recognition award today.


TAFE New England Institute Director, Peter Heilbuth, presented the award to Ms Maunder who has been commended for her outstanding effort and dedication that leads to successful learning outcomes of her students, as head teacher of Foundation Education and Business Industries.

Each month, TAFE New England takes the opportunity to recognise an individual or team whose contribution to their students is above and beyond their day-to-day requirements in areas that include customer service, initiative, excellence, innovation or community service.


TAFE New England Institute Director, Peter Heilbuth, said “I congratulate Christine on her hard work and dedication to teaching our students and providing leadership amongst her colleagues”.


TAFE New England could not maintain its reputation as the leading training provider in our communities if it were not for the knowledge and commitment of our staff,” Mr Heilbuth said.


Staff who are nominated for the monthly award have been nominated by their colleagues. The nominations are assessed and awarded by a panel of five staff from across the Institute in various roles.
