Australian Training Awards

Commencing in 1994, the Australian Training Awards are the peak, national awards for the vocational education and training (VET) sector, recognising individuals, businesses and registered training organisations for their contribution to skilling Australia.

The majority of the Awards are the culmination of the state and territory training awards with winners from each state and territory eligible to compete at the national level in aligned categories. There are also seven award categories available by entering directly.

Through showcasing best practice through the Awards' Real Stories Real Achievements initiative, the Awards promote continuous improvement and innovation in the design and delivery of VET which has led to national and international awareness and respect for Australia's VET sector and skilled-based careers.

The Awards are held annually in November in a different state or territory. The next Australian Training Awards will be held in Darwin, Northern Territory on Thursday 17 November 2016.
