Affinity Education Group has launched its annual national recognition awards program, the sixth under CEO Tim Hickey. 


The Awards are open for nominations in November, and will be announced in December. 


“I couldn’t be prouder to be seeing the shining stars in our organisation recognised during a year when we have achieved so much nationally,” Mr Hickey said. 


The 2022 Affinity Awards will recognise outstanding commitment, passion and performance across a number of categories and professions, starting with Affinity Education Group’s values: 


  • Being Completely Connected, 
  • Delivering Outstanding Professionalism, 
  • Going Above and Beyond, 
  • Creating Shining Stars,
  •  Living The Team Spirit and; 
  • Having Serious Fun.  


Other categories recognise excellence in safety, quality, education and financial management. 


State Manager’s Choice Awards will be complemented by national winners for Best Centre Manager, Assistant Centre Manager, Early Childhood Teacher, Educational Leader, Lead Educator, Trainee and Cook.  


A highlight of each annual Affinity Awards is the CEO’s Choice and Mr Hickey said the contenders for 2022 were among the most outstanding he had ever had to select from. 


“Each year it is my absolute privilege to choose the CEO’s Choice Award, recognising an indivdual who not only lives and breathes every single one of our Affinity values, but who is also an outstanding example of potential realised in their professional career in early education and care,” Mr Hickey said. 


As a feature of the nomination period all of Affinity’s 2021 national award winners have submitted a series of videos wishing 2022 nominees well.
