MEGT Institute Student of the Year – Allyson Newbon

Allyson is from the Huon Valley, but works in Sandy Bay in Tasmania as the Office and Education Administrator at the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Allyson undertook a Certificate III in Business with MEGT in 2009, and then moved on to complete her Certificate IV in Business this year.

Since completing her training, Allyson has developed a deeper understanding of her professional strengths and how to apply these strengths to her daily role within the Australian Institute of Company Directors; it was during this stage that Allyson clarified her career goals.

The Certificate IV in Business has enhanced Allyson’s understanding of the Institute and role of Company Directors and product knowledge, and her self esteem and confidence is at its peak.

As a result of the training she has undertaken Allyson is now involved with corporate event management and facilitating scholarship programs.

In March this year Allyson enrolled in the Diploma of Management with MEGT and has her career plans set in stone. She will be commencing a Bachelor Degree in Business in 2013.

The knowledge and skills Allyson has developed with MEGT has built her confidence and passion for learning and has triggered her decisions to study at University level. Allyson plans to one day set up an association for trainees and new entrants in the workforce where they can network and develop career planning skills.
