2017 Victorian Training Awards
VICTORIAN TRAINING AWARD NOMINATIONS NOW OPEN!
Now in their 63rd year, the prestigious awards recognise and honour the outstanding achievements of Vocational Education and Training students, training providers and employers. The Awards showcase innovation and collaboration between training providers and industry.
With the introduction of Skills First this year, the Victorian Government is delivering a trusted training and TAFE system that delivers real training for real jobs. Students are now better placed to receive quality training that is aligned to industry needs that leads to employability. The Awards generates pride and confidence in the training system and puts Victoria's top achievers in the spotlight.
Nominations for the awards are now open and will remain open for the next five weeks.
Winners will be announced at the gala awards ceremony to celebrate the very best in training on Wednesday 11 October at the Crown Palladium and receive $5,000 prize money. As 2017 VTA Ambassadors, recipients receive state-wide recognition from the training and TAFE system, industry experts and the Victorian community and may go on to represent our state at the Australian Training Awards on 23 November.
This year’s awards feature 15 categories including six individual categories, three training and four employer categories, an Industry Collaboration Award and a Lynne Kosky Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement.
For the first time, the Department will host information sessions for students and organisations, on Monday 22 May at Citadines 131 -135 Bourke Street. These sessions aim to provide nominees with the knowledge and tools to prepare award winning nominations.
