WINNER: Vocational Student of the Year award winner Tara McGhee Veda Dante

Awards are rolling in for Brunswick mum.

TARA McGhee is in need of a bigger trophy cabinet after winning the Vocational Student of the Year award for her stellar performance in Diploma of Business Administration studies at North Coast TAFE.

This comes less than two months after the Ocean Shores resident was presented with the Business Administration Award at the North Coast TAFE Student Awards of Excellence.

"I also received the Business Faculty Award, which encompasses a range of courses such as Business Administration, Management, Marketing, Accounting and Hairdressing," Tara said.

The mother-of-two, who works full-time as an associate recruitment consultant at JHA Recruitment & Staff @ Work, is now in the running for NSW Vocational Student of the Year.

"The awards are not just a recognition of good grades but also acknowledgement that every student has their own story," Tara said.

"I feel both honoured and humbled by the awards and recognition and am grateful that with the encouragement and support of my family, employer and teachers, I have been able to achieve this success."

Not content with graduating from her Diploma of Business Administration with distinction, Tara has already embarked on a Bachelor of Business with Southern Cross University by distance education.

"My TAFE course gave me one year off this degree, which means that it will take four years to complete part-time instead of the usual six, which is fantastic," she said.
