Work Place-Support for CPEE Students - Semester 1 2018
Do you remember a supportive teacher, co-worker or manager that boosted your learning and development? If so, then you know the value of mentoring and importance of having someone you can trust to talk to and get helpful advice from.
One of the final units that students undertake in their Centre for Pavement Education (CPEE) higher education programs is a capstone unit involving a project relevant to their work. Workplace mentors play an important role by keeping in contact with students throughout the semester and using their expertise and experience to provide valuable feedback and guidance. Workplace mentors also assist the CPEE Unit Chair to grade the final reports produced by students.
For Semester 1, 2018 we would like to acknowledge the valuable help given by following mentors to the success of our recent students who studied the work based / industry research projects units:
- Ian Dinham: Director Engineering Services, Moree Plains Shire Council, New South Wales
- Emdadul Haque: Senior Civil Engineer, Thomas Consultants Ltd, New Zealand
- Ces Johnstone: Principal Engineer, LCJ Engineers Pty Ltd, Queensland
- Sardar Khan: Project Manager Development, Mains Roads, Western Australia
- Jay Spare: Senior Manager Roads Transport and Drainage, Central Coast Council, New South Wales
It was especially rewarding to see that former student and graduate Jay Spare has, like others before him, assisted others to gain from the specialised learning CPEE offers.
Our special thanks to all current and previous mentors who made a positive contribution towards our students in successfully completing their unit.
