ORGANISATION is key to a business’ success, and TAFE NSW student Jamaika Smith is succeeding.

The Business Administration Cert III student has won the Student of the Year award for her qualification.

She will now go on to Regional State Training Awards in Tamworth.

“I started to really love what I was doing – my boss and I spoke about it and we decided to go ahead with the Cert III,” Ms Smith said.

“For me personally organisational skills are 10 out of 10 what you need.”

At TAFE Ms Smith learned how to format documents, update a website, organise payroll and work on policies and procedures.

“It’s nice to get that pat on the back to say well done, but I don’t do it for the awards I do it because it’s something I want to do as a career,” Ms Smith said.

“It definitely is a bonus for myself to know that people think I’m doing really well and it puts everything into perspective for me.

“It’s quite nice.”

The Regional State Training Awards are on June 23.
