ACT early childhood education and care (ECEC) and training provider, Communities@Work has been recognised for the third consecutive year as ACT Large Employer of the Year at the ACT Training Awards


The ACT Large Employer of the Year award recognises a large organisation with a demonstrated commitment to training its employees and encouraging and assisting them in their employment-related development. 


“We are proud and humbled to receive this recognition, and congratulate our whole team, including our Registered Training Organisation (RTO 88148) – The Centre of Professional Learning and Education (CPLE) – for all of their hard work in developing and running an incredible training program. We are proud to support excellence in training and professional development for all our employees,” a spokesperson said.  


The ACT Training Awards is an annual opportunity to showcase the commitment, innovation and outstanding achievements of all those involved in the ACT vocational education and training (VET) sector.


Carla Scalia, RTO manager, said Communities@Work was “proud and humbled” to again be recognised in the awards, describing the win as a reflection of the dedication Communities@Work shows in supporting the learning of its team and investing in the skills of its employees. 


“The CPLE team are honoured to play a part in facilitating the learning journey of many within the organisation and look forward to continuing to offer opportunities to nurture and extend the amazing capabilities of our own,” she added. 


Communities@Work employs over 600 people, with the bulk (almost 500) involved in ECEC. To complement formal training opportunities, Communities@Work gives employees opportunities to cross-skill and develop career pathways working across roles and areas in the organisation.
