Celebration for Angliss grads
William Angliss Institute held graduation ceremonies at the La Trobe Street campus this week, celebrating the accomplishments of over 216 graduating students across its speciality areas of foods, tourism, hospitality, events and hotel management.
The Institute was particularly proud to welcome keynote speakers Mark Normoyle and graduates Cameron Maher and Alex Loriente who provided the graduands with both inspiration and practical advice.
"Celebrating our students' success, seeing the hard work rewarded with a qualification that will start them on their career is always exciting and a good reminder why we strive to do our best for these young people. We thank our industry partnerships and sponsors as we couldn't do this without them," said William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt.
The support and insights of our industry partners is incredibly important to provide graduates with training that is relevant to their needs.
Major industry partners such as Nestle Professional, Fonterra, Peerless Foods and Robot Coupe support the students throughout the year and many others enable the Institute to provide additional opportunities to recognise the development of skills and knowledge through sponsored awards.
