Apprentices, students, teachers, employers and training providers can now nominate for the 65th Victorian Training Awards.

Member for Eastern Victoria Region, Harriet Shing, encouraged Gippsland locals to submit nominations for the awards, which recognise and honour the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations in the Victorian TAFE and training sector.

There are 16 categories including six for individuals, four for employers, four for training organisations as well as an Industry Collaboration Award and the Lynne Kosky Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Victorian TAFEs have won the coveted Australian Large Training Provider of the Year Award for the last three years, demonstrating restored confidence in our training sector to deliver quality training that gives Victorians the skills they need to secure rewarding jobs.

Winners will be announced at the Victorian Training Awards gala ceremony in Melbourne in September, with winners receiving $5000 in prize money.

Some winners will also have the opportunity to represent Victoria at the Australian Training Awards in Brisbane in November.

Applications close at midnight on Friday 3 May.
