Miriam Hochwald – a QLD-based IT Consultant – has been named the 2014 recipient of the Professionals Australia Partnership scholarship. Miriam has been a member of the Association since 2011.
Miriam is intending to put the $500 towards undertaking the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. On how she expects the training to contribute to her consultancy, she said: “I’m setting up a mentoring program with the aim of helping encourage girls to pursue IT studies and to help improve their resilience and remain in IT roles in their early career years. Doing the Cert IV training will give me the skills to confidently do the pre-program training which is critical to making a mentoring program effective. I very much value Professionals Australia’s assistance.”
