Among QUEENSLAND’S top apprentice, trainee and training achievers is St Columban’s College Caboolture student Matthew Siver, who was recently awarded the School-Based Apprentice or Trainee of the year award at the Cairns Training Awards. 
The awards celebrate the exceptional people, projects and organisations developing the skilled workers Queensland needs. 
The Year 12 BCE student is currently undertaking a school-based traineeship with Metro North Health that will result in a Certificate III in Health Services Assistance, with the aspirations to one day become a paramedic. 
St Columban’s College Principal Michael Connolly said he is incredibly proud of Matthew and his commitment to his study. 
“Vocational education and training can open many pathways for students like Matthew,” he said. 
“Matthew has shown such commitment throughout his schooling and vocational training he truly deserves this award for his dedication and passion for health care. 
“I know Matthew has a bright future ahead and I can’t wait to see him accomplish his dreams in the health care world.” 
Matthew says undertaking this training pathway has ignited a passion for the health care sector. 
“I plan to continue my studies in the field of health care after I graduates from high school,” he said. 
“My ultimate career goal would be to become a paramedic, and I am excited to see what the future holds for me.”​
