Nominate now for the 2018 Queensland Training Awards — celebrating everyday Queenslanders who have achieved success, best practice and innovation through vocational education and training (VET).

Velg Training’s own, Director of Content & Strategy, Kerri Buttery, said programs like the Queensland Training Awards are important because the quality of VET in Australia depends on the quality of our trainers and assessors.

“The Queensland Training Awards provide recognition for the trainers and teachers who work so hard and who are passionate about VET and dedicate their lives to helping students.” said Ms Buttery. 

There are 14 award categories available, including Small and Large Training Provider of the Year.

Past organisational winners, like St Columban’s College (2017 Small Training Provider of the Year winner), have found that completing a nomination is a fantastic benchmarking opportunity for their organisation.

“We love the training awards because it’s the best initiative for recognising outstanding practise. We have developed a blue print for our college which stemmed from the process of entering the awards –you have to be able to say how you replicate what you do, what’s innovative, what are your practices in establishing partnerships, what are your outcomes? To be recognised as the best in the state is truly magnificent,” said Ann Rebgetz, Principal, St Columban’s College.

Many organisations have also found that being selected as a finalist and attending awards’ events can provide exposure to valuable business and networking opportunities.

Training organisations can also highlight their commitment to workforce development and their staff by nominating them in the individual award categories – including teachers and trainers, apprentices, trainees and vocational students.

Nominate now. Nominations close on 2 March 2018.
