The 2020 Australian Training Awards recognises outstanding achievement in vocational education and training

Australian Training Awards Finalists represent the best in VET

Outstanding achievement in vocational education and training (VET) has been recognised, with 75 finalists from across Australia announced in the 2020 Australian Training Awards.

The Awards will be held virtually on Friday 20 November, and highlight Australia’s world-class vocational education and training (VET) system. 

The VET sector’s night-of-nights recognises excellence across three broad categories: individuals including students, apprentices, trainees and teachers; employers who train their workforce; and registered training organisations.

The awards also recognise outstanding leadership and contribution to the VET sector through the Lifetime Achievement Award and National Achievement Award. 

This virtual event will be hosted by the National Careers Ambassador, Mr Scott Cam.

You can register now to watch the awards ceremony online this Friday. Viewers will receive a unique link on the day of the awards which will go live at 6 pm AEDT on Friday, 20 November 2020. 

Discover more about the 2020 finalists by reading their profiles on Australian Training Awards.

All award finalists will also be invited to become part of the exclusive Australian VET Alumni. Alumni members share their story of success and inspire others to consider VET training on their career pathway.
