Help us promote 2023 nominations

We’d love your help to promote nominations for the 2023 Australian Training Awards and raise awareness of the Australian Training Awards as a high-profile event to celebrate excellence in VET.

Our stakeholder promotional kit includes resources you can use on your website, in newsletters and on social media to encourage entry into the Australian Government direct entry award categories. Everything you need is included in the downloadable zip file below!


The Australian Training Awards commenced in 1994 and are the Australian Government’s biggest celebration of the vocational education and training (VET) sector, celebrating outstanding individuals, employers and training organisations across Australia.

The awards presentation ceremony is held annually in November in a different state or territory and this year will be held in Hobart, Tasmania on 17 November 2023.

Nominations for the 2023 direct entry award categories are open from 8 March to 31 May 2023. Nominations for some award categories also come through the state/territory award programs later in the year. All finalists will be announced in October 2023.
