Are you WA’s top achiever? Search is on to find the best of the best in the training sector
Entries for the 2020 WA Training Awards are now open, and include a new Lifetime Achievement category. West Australian Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery encouraged the State’s top apprentices, trainees, employers and training organisations to apply.
“The WA Training Awards are an opportunity to shine a light on the many wonderful accomplishments in vocational education and training in this State. I encourage our top achievers to get their entries in early,” Ms Ellery said.
Award winners will be announced in September at the WA Training Awards Presentation Dinner, with individual winners receiving $3,000 in cash and may also be eligible to compete against the nation’s finest at the Australian Training Awards later in the year.
With 14 categories – nine individual and five organisational, there are multiple opportunities for those in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector to be recognised.
Rebecca Hudson was an award winner in 2019, and has now become a WA Training Awards Ambassador. Ms Hudson encouraged people of all ages to celebrate their training achievements by applying for the awards in line with the close of applications on 1 May 2020.
“Western Australia’s training system is one of the best in the world and success stories such as last year’s Trainee of the Year Rebecca Hudson highlight that a vocational training pathway leads directly to jobs,” Ms Ellery said.
