The Australian Training Awards (the Awards) commenced in 1994. Over this time many individuals, businesses, and registered training organisation’s have been rewarded for showcasing best practice in VET.
The Awards are held annually in November in a different state or territory. The 2020 Australian Training Awards will be held in Melbourne on Friday 20 November 2020.
In 2020 there will be 18 categories presented – nine for individuals and nine for businesses and registered training organisations.
11 of the 18 awards categories are entered to the Australian Training Awards through the state and territory training awards process with winners from each state and territory becoming eligible to compete at the national level in aligned categories.
Seven of the 18 award categories are available by entering directly to the Australian Training Awards via the online nomination portal.
Finalists of the Australian Training Awards are required to participate in the Finalist Week program which may include a judging interview as well as the opportunity to establish networks with fellow category finalists from around Australia. Finalists also learn about the Australian VET Alumni as all Australian Training Awards finalists are invited to become members of this exclusive program.
The Australian VET Alumni are national ambassador for the vocational education and training (VET) sector.
