Are you a Furnishing Industry business employer that supports the nationally recognised training programs for your employees?

Since 1994, the Australian Training Awards have recognised the outstanding achievements of apprentices, trainees, vocational students, training practitioners, businesses, secondary schools and registered training organisations for their contribution to skilling Australia.

Of the 18 categories presented, a majority of the awards are the culmination of state and territory training awards programs with winners from each state and territory eligible to compete at the national level in aligned categories.

There are also seven award categories available by entering directly to the Australian Training Awards. Applicants may have the opportunity to reach the national stage in November this year and gain Australia-wide recognition for the work they do.

Business employers drive growth and create jobs and are the engine room of the Australian economy. In acknowledgement of the vital role employer’s play in Australia, the Awards recognise enterprises which have achieved excellence in the provision of nationally recognised training to its employees.

‘Nationally recognised training’ refers to training that is based on a national training package or accredited course which results in a person receiving a formal qualification or Statement of Attainment issued by a Registered Training Organisation. This includes Australian Apprenticeships.
