More than 30 finalists have been announced for the Training Awards 2017, the state’s leading training awards program run by the Department of Training and Workforce Development.
WA’s top employers in training have been recognised in the Apprenticeship Support Australia Employer of the Year award.
Two of Apprenticeship Support Australia’s clients McDonald’s Australia and Roy Hill were finalists for the award.
In the Small Training Provider of the Year category another CCIWA organisation, the Industrial Training Institute was nominated a finalist.
The awards highlight and recognise the great training outcomes employers are achieving and contributing in WA.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery says there has never been a more important time for training in Western Australia.
“These finalists go above and beyond to drive opportunities and partnerships, a key factor to achieve employment targets and build a stronger WA,” she says.
“These finalists are setting the benchmark because we are looking for training on which to grow jobs and support the economy.
“This awards program opens doors and gives finalists opportunities to take their skills even further.
“Highlighting the value of training pathways affords an opportunity to celebrate the people and organisations behind the economic development of our state and the contribution they have made towards a bright future for WA.”
State winners will receive $5000 in cash or prizes.
Winners will be announced at a presentation dinner on September 15.
Winners of the WA Training Awards may be eligible to represent the WA at the Australian Training Awards in Canberra in November.
