Six Bunbury-based students received scholarships covering tuition and resource fees for a Certificate II in Electrotechnology at a ceremony held the South Regional TAFE Bunbury Campus on Friday.

For Bunbury mother of two Natasha Cowcher, being awarded a position in Western Power’s $50,000 regional TAFE scholarship program has opened the door to a career she thought had closed years ago.

“When I saw the Western Power TAFE scholarships offered I thought here is my opportunity to get on with what I really want to do professionally – especially for my children, because if I can’t follow my dream then how will I encourage them to do the same?” she said.

South Regional TAFE managing director Duncan Anderson said the scholarships were a generous commitment by Western Power and the college was privileged to work alongside the organisation to advocate entry into the electrical trade.

“The students receiving scholarships are on a sound footing to a fantastic career,” he said.
