Passing of Nigel Plaskett, Principal Manager of the APY Trade Training Centre

Warning: *distressing content that mentions death*

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Nigel Plaskett, who passed away unexpectedly on the evening of Sunday 23 January.

Nigel served the APY Trade Training Centre for the past nine years, working as a TAFE SA Hospitality Lecturer for the first eight and half years, and then recently becoming the APY Trade Training Centre’s Principal Manager in August of 2021.

He was committed to providing training opportunities to students and communities on the APY Lands.

Nigel was well known, respected and a good friend to many.

His happy disposition and friendly nature touched us all and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Two men shake hands
