In 2022, the Victorian Training Awards mark their 68th year of celebrating the outstanding achievements of apprentices, students, teachers, employers and training providers in the VET sector. VDC is the proud sponsor of the Teacher/Trainer of the Year Award.

Last year’s awards honoured the achievements of many outstanding organisations and individuals, with four Victorian representatives going on to achieve national success at the Australian Training Awards.

Nominate yourself, your students, your organisation, or someone else you know those who deserve recognition for their exceptional efforts in the VET sector.

Award winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in September and will receive $5,000 in prize money and a trophy. Winners in select categories represent Victoria at the Australian Training Awards in Adelaide in November.

Winners receive recognition across the sector and with industry. The nomination process itself is an opportunity to reflect on the factors of success for the organisation or the learning journey for the individual.

Nominations are now open and close on midnight on Saturday 28 May, so don’t delay – start the nomination process today!
