ATAC College Awards
Australian Technology and Agriculture College Celebrates Success at North Maclean Campus
The growth of the ATAC campus at North Maclean this year has produced some great results with students graduating at the awards ceremony last month. ATAC principal, Dr Narendra Nand, said, “We are very proud of our students. They have worked very hard and overcome many obstacles to get their certificates and awards.”
The college provides flexible learning options for students to complete their year 10, 11 and 12 qualifications while also gaining certificates in business, trades, agriculture and many other fields. The awards night highlighted the current year’s students as well as celebrating the success of previous students who are now gainfully employed and establishing their careers.
The college is also expanding its service to include a community garden through which people can gain qualifications in agriculture and horticulture. This has opportunity has been embraced by refugee groups who already have vast experience in agriculture but who don’t have formal qualifications.
Dr Nand is also one of Australia’s foremost experts in bush foods, and is always keen to share his knowledge. The college recently hosted the 7th Annual Bush Foods Conference of Queensland with experts and participants coming from all over Australia to share their knowledge.
