On Saturday 26th August 2017, UOW College attended the inaugural Big Fat Smile Stellar Awards. UOW College has had a proud partnership with the Big Fat Smile group since the introduction of the Diploma of Early Childhood Education & Care in 2014. UOW College Assistant Manager Vocational Programs, Tracey Annan, was in attendance to present the award for Service Excellence to Koonawarra Community Preschool. The award highlights the hard work and achievements of the preschool in going above and beyond their service delivery.
Big Fat Smile delivers guaranteed work placements to UOW College students during their studies, while the College continues to support the initiatives of the not-for-profit organisation.
UOW College General Manager Julie Renwick said: “UOW College’s Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care curriculum is industry relevant, delivered face-to-face and requires students to undertake work experience.
“We are pleased to partner with the Big Fat Smile Group to ensure that students become empowered graduates who excel and provide the best possible care when working in the early childhood industry.”
