Nominations for SA Training Awards now open

Nominations are now open for South Australia’s leading vocational education and training awards.

The awards recognise the achievements of the state’s best VET students, apprentices and trainees, trainers, training providers, schools and employers.

Winners will be announced at a Gala Presentation in September.

A world-class skills sector is important to the future economic strength of the state and these prestigious awards showcase the talents of training organisations, students and employers who are leading the way.

The Awards program has been expanded this year with the introduction of the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognises an individual’s outstanding leadership and contribution to the South Australian VET and skills sector for more than 15 years. The new award highlights the enormous contribution that many make to the sector, above the everyday, with a long-lasting impact.

The Award program also includes a Voters’ Choice Award which is presented to the public’s favourite individual finalist.

SA Skills Commissioner Cameron Baker said the Awards are a fantastic way to showcase the efforts and talents of individuals and organisations across the state who motivate others and contribute to their communities, while building a fulfilling pathway in the VET sector.

“Through these awards we want to recognise the incredible quality, diversity and ingenuity in VET across our state.
I encourage you to get involved in this Awards program by nominating yourself, encouraging others to nominate or simply spreading the word.
You may know someone who’s an outstanding teacher, trainer, or long-serving member of the VET sector; you may be aware of a business committed to building and developing its people through training; or you may be one of our state’s outstanding training providers delivering high quality training and shaping our future workforce.
You might be a passionate apprentice or trainee who’s making a positive impact in your industry or someone who has overcome challenges and is now thriving because of your training. Now is the time to share your story” he said.

Nominations close on 24 May, with judging to take place throughout June and July.

Winners will be announced on 25 September at the 2024 South Australian Training

Awards Gala Presentation, before the national 2024 Australian Training

Awards Presentation in Canberra on 6 December.
