William Angliss Institute celebrates student success

This week William Angliss Institute held graduation ceremonies at the La Trobe Street campus, celebrating the accomplishments of 333 graduating students. 

William Angliss Institute was particularly proud to welcome back alumnus as keynote speakers. Grace Falconer-Smith, Rooms Division Manager for Tuileries Rutherglen spoke to the Hospitality and Angliss International Hotel School graduating group and Jacqueline Dickensen, account coordinator at Chill, addressed the graduands of aviation, travel, tourism and events.  Jacqueline told the graduands, “ I learnt early on during my training at Angliss that experience was the key to my future success. My advice is to listen always and be open to all the new experiences on offer in your career journey as you never know where it will lead you.”

Holly Johnson, HR Manager at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park, assured graduands of the Faculty of Higher Education that they would continue to extend their William Angliss Institute community network out in the industry and echoed Jacqueline’s advice to pursue every opportunity to learn and strengthen their personal brand. 

RACV City Club Executive Sous chef, Grant Flack, inspired graduands of Food Trades and Culinary Arts with his story of international travel and opportunities to learn develop under the guidance of inspirational chefs around the world.

“Our graduation week is a very important reminder of why we all do what we do to support these young people.  Celebrating our students’ success, seeing the hard work rewarded with a qualification that will start them on their career is always exciting. We thank our industry partnerships and sponsors as we couldn’t do this without them,” said William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt.

Graduation events not only recognise the huge effort that students put into their studies, but also the importance of our industry partners in providing support and working with the Institute to ensure the training 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.
