The awards just keep on coming for well-liked TAFE teacher, Stephen Anderson.

Anderson, who is the head teacher for graphic arts (screen printing) at Sydney Institute TAFE won the Sydney Institute 2008 Staff Celebration Teaching Excellence award, where he was up against fellow TAFE teachers from around Sydney.

This follows Anderson’s recent  accolade where he took out Trades and Skills Teacher of the Year Award.

“I’ve had a pretty good run lately,” he said.

Known for his reluctance to indulge in "personal glorification", Anderson (pictured) was once more humbled that his efforts had been acknowledged and appreciated by the wider community.

“Normally, I don’t go into this type of thing,” he admitted. “And I certainly wasn’t expecting to win.”

Anderson has been a teacher for the last 26 years and prides himself on being "a head teacher who teachers." After receiving the Trades and Skills Teacher of the Year Award, Anderson was given $2000 to use on a personal development project.

After much thought, he has decided he would like to complete Chromaticity’s colour management course. “Colour management is an important area and something we can all learn from,” he said.
