Staff Excellence Awards

This year our Staff Excellence Awards were aligned to Macquarie Community College’s updated Guiding Principles.

The 2019 awards recognise individuals nominated by their peers and selected against meeting at least 3 of the following criteria:

  • PHILOSOPHY: Individual excellence – an individual who has provided outstanding service or performance in their day-to-day job.
  • PHILOSOPHY:Passionate about our students and business partners – an individual who delivers programs with a focus on meeting the education and training needs of the individual students within the community at key transition points in their lives. 
  • COLLABORATION: Team Player – an individual who collaborates with their peers to make things happen. Their whole approach is can-do: ‘What contribution can I make to help the team achieve success”.
  • INTEGRITY:Demonstrates personal and professional integrity – takes personal responsibility to deliver on promises and demonstrates integrity at all times.
  • COMMITMENT: Always prepared to go the extra mile – going beyond what is expected, demonstrating passion, following up to show you care and genuinely want to help MCC achieve its goals.
  • DIVERSITY:Acceptance of and encouragement to people from all backgrounds – an individual who believes that participation in affordable, quality education is transformational and is committed to helping motivated learners from all backgrounds “climb the ladder of learning”. They want others to achieve their educational, personal and career goals. 
  • RESPECT: Valuing the feelings, wishes, opinions and rights of others – an individual who can empathise, listen, is responsive and treats others with courtesy and politeness.
