ASbA of the Year - Highly Commended
Cyrus Wren commenced a Certificate III in Business as an ASbA with the Australian Training Company and is hosted at the ACT Education Directorate.
From an early age, Cyrus was eager to join the public service, but he did not know how to get there. When Cyrus first learned about ASbAs, he was able to connect his career aspirations with an achievable pathway while attending Dickson College.
The team Cyrus works with at the Education Directorate values his input and as result Cyrus is involved in program design and implementation, along with promotion of ASbAs.

ASbA of the Year – Finalist
Cody Jagoe-Shaw commenced a Certificate III in Individual Support with Quest Training Solutions. She is employed by the Australian Training Company and is hosted at Black Mountain School.
Cody chose this industry and training pathway as she has a passion for supporting people living with a disability. This commitment is inspired by her mother who is a teacher in the learning support unit at a primary school. Cody promotes vocational education and training as an important pathway and believes that she has gained invaluable life experience during her ASbA. With the support of Quest Training Solutions and Black Mountain School, her skills have grown immensely, especially her ability to communicate and engage in meaningful ways with others.
Cody's ASbA has given her the confidence to pursue her other interests and passions. She is working towards building an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student network for herself and her peers.
