The Intergen Young Achiever Awards are available to first year Bachelor of Information Technology students at WelTec.  The Awards recognise academic achievement and a student’s contribution to their peers and to their overall study programme.  The students are nominated by their fellow students and the Awards are made by Wellington ICT company, Intergen.

“The Intergen Young Achiever Award is a great boost to my confidence.  It is fantastic to be introduced so early on my studies to a go-ahead company like Intergen,” says Aleisha Perry, a former Tawa College student who worked as a café manager before deciding to study ICT at WelTec.

Nicole Priddey who was at Wellington Girl’s College last year but had her sights firmly set on a career in ICT said , “It’s great to get this recognition especially when my peers nominated me.”

Hyuck Yim commented that acknowledgement by Intergen was humbling and very rewarding at this stage of his studies.

Simon Bright Intergen CEO provided his congratulations to students on choosing the fastest growing sector of the economy and New Zealand’s leading export sector.  “ICT is an exciting and fast-paced sector to work in.  At Intergen when we say ICT we are talking about at least 27 different roles so there are many exciting and challenging career options for graduates.  Through the Intergen Young Achievers Awards we want to promote ICT and get more young people interested in learning more about this exciting area.”
