What does the judging process involve?

For award categories articulating from state and territory training awards programs, judging starts at the state or territory level. The award criteria used for the state, territory and national awards are aligned and the original winning application from the state or territory awards is used at the national level.

For categories that require direct entry applications to the Australian Training Awards, judging commences at the national level and involves a short listing process and judging interviews for shortlisted applicants.

Who are the judges?

Judging panels are generally comprised of four members and are chaired by a Senior Executive Service officer from the Department of Education and Training.

Each panel also has a member of a state or territory government and an industry representative. The winner of the previous Australian Training Award (in the same category) may also be invited to participate on the panel.
