NSW was well represented at the Australian Training Awards held in Brisbane in November last year.

Finalists from all states and territories vied for the “best of the best” title at the National Awards – and NSW came to the fore in several categories.

Ms Jeanette Allen won the Leadership in Quality Award, Western College took the Community Pathways to VET Award back to Dubbo and TAFE NSW (Western Sydney Institute) won the Skills for Sustainability – Educational Institution Award.

NSW also has the best Small Training Provider in the country: Equalis.

Operating across metropolitan and regional NSW, Equalis offer a wide variety of courses in the Community Services sector.

Also, Joshua Toomey was named Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year.

Joshua completed his Electricity Supply Industry – Distribution (Power Line) with Ausgri earlier in the 2011. Joining them through their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Pre-Apprenticeship program in 2006, he never looked back. Great focus, determination and the ability to motivate others, he is a true asset to Indigenous community.

The NSW Training Awards closed off the calendar year by launching the 2012 NSW Training Awards.

Applications for these prestigious awards are now open.

Training the apprentice or trainee is the hard part.

The NSW Training Awards are the perfect way for a company to celebrate its achievements.

Nominating an individual or organisation for an award shows your pride in their achievements as well as a commitment to training.

The awards help to raise the profile of your organisation in your community – and best of all, entering the NSW Training Awards is free.

Awards are presented to apprentices, trainees, students, trainers, training organisations and employers.

Entries for the 2012 NSW Training Awards close on Friday, March 30, 2012.
