  • Last chance to nominate for WA Training Awards 2017
  • Healthy training sector drives economic development and creates jobs

There is still time for Western Australian students, trainees, apprentices, trainers and organisations to put their accomplishments in the spotlight as part of the WA Training Awards 2017.

2016 WA Apprentice of the Year Brendan Carlson discovered that winning the award opened up opportunities to advance his career. 

“Annual awards are an ideal opportunity to celebrate and honour the achievements of some of the outstanding performers from vocational education and training in the State.” Minister for Education and Training Sue Ellery said.

“In addition to officially recognising training success, the awards are also a springboard for finalists and winners to build on their notable achievements and raise their profile in their chosen careers.”

Brendan worked in the Australian Defence Force for 6 years before completing an electrical/instrumentation apprenticeship with Chevron, as part of his transition back into civilian life.

Award winners will be announced in September and each winner will receive $5,000 in cash or prizes. Winners may also be eligible to compete against the nation’s best at the Australian Training Awards later in the year.

Applications for the WA Training Awards 2017 close at 5 pm on Friday, May 5.
