Honour Roll 2011

Students Recognised and Rewarded for Excellence in Work Placement

The Work Placement Honour Roll is an initiative of MWLP, MG My Gateway and HTN – Hospitality Employment Solutions which rewards excellence in HSC VET work placement. It is made up of students who their host employers have identified as being outstanding and have had extremely positive feedback about them during their week of work placement. This feedback is gathered through weekly calls to host employers which our team makes for every student on placement and students are progressively added to the roll throughout the year. As a nominee, students receive:

  • An exclusive offer to attend an interview with MG My Gateway or HTN – Hospitality Employment Solutions for an available apprenticeship or traineeship with one of their employers
  • Inclusion on a framed and mounted Honour Roll, which is presented to each school/TAFE to proudly display alongside other significant school achievements which recognizes them by their Principals, teachers and peers; and
  • A personal certificate to proudly display in their resume and to show prospective employers

Every student nominated for the Honour Roll is also in the running for the ‘Work Placement Student of the Year’ Award. Three outstanding students are selected as a finalist for the award with the winner announced at the prestigious MG My Gateway Apprentice & Trainee Awards.

We feel this is a great partnership with MG My Gateway and HTN – Hospitality Employment Solutions which rewards students who have performed exceptionally well during their work placement and provides them with a unique opportunity. Students are put in touch with local employers and hopefully the outcome will mean great talented young people are retained by the employers of Macarthur.

We believe that recognizing excellence in work placement is a long overdue reward for local VET students and is one that will address the gap between work placement and real employment.
