The NSW Minister of Education and Training Verity Firth has launched this year’s NSW Training Awards in Sydney, celebrating 55 years of excellence.
Each year the NSW Training Awards recognise and reward outstanding achievements in vocational education and training.
From its humble beginnings in 1955 with the recognition of the best apprentice, the NSW Training Awards has expanded to include individual awards for apprentices, trainees, school based apprentices, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, school students participating in VET, as well as organisational awards for businesses and training providers.
NSW Awards finalists are chosen from regional competitions held in Sydney, Western Sydney, South Western Sydney, Southern Sydney, Central Coast, Riverina, New England, North Coast, Western NSW, Illawarra and the Hunter.
State winners are eligible to compete at the Australian Training Awards.
Entries for the 2010 NSW Training Awards are now open.
Companies are encouraged to nominate and support apprentices and trainees.
Organisations and individual winners receive cash or prize awards.
