Isabella Turrise


Team Australia - Car Painting

Mount Druitt’s Isabella Turrise (or Bella, as she’s known to her friends) is a true example that you don’t have to go to university to blaze an exciting and promising career path.

After trying her hand at uni and realising it wasn’t for her, Bella decided to pursue a passion she’d cultivated during a high school automotive class, and enrolled in an Automotive Refinishing Technology course at TAFE NSW.

In doing so, Bella found her niche. After some encouragement from her teacher and classmates, she felt confident enough to compete in a regional WorldSkills competition, where she performed well enough to earn an invitation to compete at the 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships.

There, up against some of the best automotive refinishing talent in Australia, Bella earned a gold medal – and in invite to join the 2022 Skills Squad.

Now, Bella is training hard for the 46th WorldSkills International Competition in Shanghai – fine-tuning her application skills at work during the day, and testing her timing during nighttime training sessions at her TAFE.

Bella’s dedication to her training is partly inspired by those who have supported and believed in her on her journey (including her teachers), and partly by the desire to earn an impressive mark at the International competition and show the world what young, skilled female workers can achieve.

The WorldSkills journey has already notably improved Bella’s attention to detail and problem-solving skills, while the support from her Skills Squad teammates has given her a renewed sense of community.

“I hope I can encourage other young women interested in the trade to join and go after their own aspirations with confidence that they will be accepted,” says Bella.

    WorldSkills Australia

    WorldSkills Australia is a social enterprise that has a purpose to identify, demonstrate, promote, and grow the excellence of Australia’s skills development. A not-for-profit organisation, we are a united voice for skills excellence in vocational, technological, and service oriented careers in Australia. We recognise that the vocational education and training sector is central to Australia’s economic growth, productivity, and future employment outcomes. We have a long and successful history of supporting young Australians to excel in their trade or skill by encouraging them to take part in WorldSkills events and test their skills against their peers at Australia’s most prestigious skills excellence competitions. We are unashamedly about excellence and since 1981, more to 100,000 apprentices and trainees have taken part in WorldSkills Australia activities with many going on to become leaders and key influencers in industry, small business owners and educators. In addition, during the past 40 years, thousands of industry experts and education professionals have enjoyed professional and personal development by volunteering their time and resources to support, train and mentor the apprentices and trainees taking part in WorldSkills competitions regionally, nationally, and internationally. WorldSkills events also provide unequalled opportunities for knowledge exchange between educators, industry, employers, and government departments, with a focus on best practices in skills training and development. As a result, educators and trainers, who participate as a WorldSkills Volunteers typically report improved training delivery and standards and this flows onto the RTO’s and employer groups in a meaningful way. Here is some more information on WorldSkills Australia and our competitors in action at the 2021 National Championships in Perth
