Australian Training Awards

The Australian Training Awards are the peak national awards that showcase best practice in vocational education and training (VET).

They recognise and celebrate excellence and are an important mechanism for promoting the benefits of vocational education and training.

Winners from each state and territory training awards compete for a national award title. This has led to Australia-wide awareness and respect for skill-based careers and skills excellence.

Direct entry awards

Many of the Australian Training Award applicants are drawn directly from each state's awards, but there are some awards in which you apply directly through the Australian Training Awards website.

Applications for the Australian Training Awards will close on 31 May 2022.

The 2022 Australian Training Awards presentation event will be held in Adelaide on 18 November 2022.

"If I can impact one student’s future career the way my lecturers shaped mine, I will be able to retire knowing I’ve done something worthy."
