The Victorian WorkCover Authority (VWA) Recognition Ceremony was held on 11th June at the Telstra Theatrette. 53 graduands (of the 88) received their received awards for completing Certificate III and Certificate IV in Personal Injury Management (Claims Management) and Diploma of Personal Injury Management qualifications from DeakinPrime in the past 12 months.
The event included speeches from Denise Cosgrove, Chief Executive of VWA, and Simon Hann, DeakinPrime CEO, who acknowledged the huge success of the strategic partnership between the two organisations in developing and issuing qualifications to over 1,000 industry workers in the seven-year joint partnership. Simon spoke of DeakinPrime’s great pride in supporting VWA’s five authorised agents in continuing their partnership with VWA and their efforts in professionalising the personal injury sector workforce in Victoria: ‘I believe the partnership we have developed over the past seven years with the Victorian WorkCover Authority and the agents (Allianz, CGU, Gallagher Bassett, QBE and Xchanging) is a showcase example of a university working with industry to design and deliver innovative and best practice programs that are aligned to the specific people-capability development needs of a very important industry.’
The awards were handed out by the agents’ representatives and the Recognition Ceremony was a huge success, with over 120 people attending this event.
