GAIN NATIONAL EXPOSURE BY SUPPORTING OUR YOUNG ACHIEVERS

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the NSW Training Awards – a fantastic initiative that recognises vocational education and training in NSW.

Each year the Awards celebrate and reward outstanding achievements by apprentices, trainees and students as well as trainers, teachers, training providers and employers throughout NSW.

There are more than 95,000 apprentices and trainees currently employed in NSW, and some 50,000 of those apprenticeships are in traditional trades.

Each year the NSW Department of Education and Communities receives more than 800 applications across 16 award categories – testimony to the event’s outstanding success.

Award winners go on to represent their state at the Australian Training Awards.

In the past five years the Awards have grown from strength to strength, thanks largely to Project Manager Edith Macintosh and her dedicated team.

In June, 11 regional events will be conducted throughout NSW with more than 5000 people expected to attend.

The NSW Training Awards culminate in a glittering Awards ceremony, to be held in Sydney in September.

The Awards night attracts more than 1000 influential businesses as well as sponsors and VIP guests, state and national winners, VIPs from the VET sector, group training organisations and HSC students, apprentices, trainees and teachers.

The NSW Training Awards present an outstanding opportunity for Australian manufacturers to get their name in lights – and at the same time support and promote some outstanding young achievers.

Major partners include TAFE NSW, Australian Business Apprenticeships Centre, Unions NSW, Australian Industry Group and Motor Traders Association of NSW.

Sponsorship packages for the NSW Training Awards are still available, so why not get behind this great event?

Sponsorship may include cash support for specific industry categories or product sponsorship in the form of products, prizes or food and beverage.

And sponsors can look forward to continued media coverage of the awards throughout the year.

The Diamond Year celebrations will include a history of the awards with stories of past achievements and honours as early as 1955 when the first apprentice Howard Bate was awarded the Silver Medallion.
