Trinity College, Beenleigh VET and Pathways Leader Alicki Campbell has just won an Excellence Award for Department Head of the Year, as part of the Australian Education Awards 2022. 

The Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) teacher is being attributed to the rising success and continued development of Trinity Colleges’ Vocational Education and Training Centre, and Student Pathways program. 

Trinity College School Principal Christopher Raju said the Vocational Education and Training Centre and Student Pathways has grown significantly in the past three years. 

“Under Ms Campbell’s leadership the program has become one of the largest offering of VET certifications at a non-government school in Southeast Queensland,” Principal Raju said. 

“Ms Campbell is a dynamic leader and inspiring teacher, and we are so proud to see her work recognised with an Excellence Award in this years’ Australian Education Awards 2022. 

“This is a huge accomplishment for Ms Campbell, and the success of our Student Pathways program can be attributed to her specialist knowledge in relevant policy and legislation, the introduction and collaborative development of teaching programs and subjects, that support the participation of all students with an aim to develop future pathways.  

“Ms Campbell also has a remarkable work ethic and has over the years facilitated and developed high-quality programs for maximum impact upon student learning, keeping our students at the forefront of innovation and industry standards. 

“Thanks to Ms Campbell and our staff, the college’s results show that our students exiting into full-time employment or further study exceed the Logan-Beaudesert region and Queensland average by almost 20 percent. 

“With all this in mind, it is no surprise Ms Campbell took home an Excellence Award for Department Head of the Year. 

“On behalf of Trinity College, Beenleigh we would like to congratulate Ms Campbell and thank her for her remarkable contributions to our school and community.” 

Ms Campbell said it is nice to win such a prestigious award but feels more satisfaction in seeing her students succeed after school.  

“I pride myself on preparing students for the real world, and I feel even more passionately about ensuring students in our area are equipped for life after school,” Ms Campbell said. 

“Students in the Beenleigh and Logan area were on the back foot for the longest time, and it is my mission to ensure their rising success, whether they choose an apprenticeship or go on to complete TAFE, or a University Degree after school. 

“I would like to thank the Australian Education Awards 2022 for selecting me among many amazing candidates nationally for this prestigious award.”​
