The 2021 NSW Training Awards are just around the corner in October with the awards selection process again offering the people of NSW the chance to cast their vote in the People’s Choice categories.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said this year marked the 66th year of the NSW Training Awards that celebrate the achievements of our apprentices, trainees, students, teachers and institutions in our Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector right across the State.

“The NSW Training Awards have long celebrated not only the high-achieving, young learners building careers through work-based training, but also the adult learners who’ve wisely decided to use VET to launch a new career,” Mr Lee said.

“It is also important to acknowledge the role that vocational careers have played in our economic recovery during a global pandemic and the pipeline of highly skilled workers that will continue to support our economy into the future.

“I’m calling on the people of NSW to vote for their ‘top’ People’s Choice in the Apprentice, Trainee, School-Based Apprentice/Trainee, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander categories.”

Have your say and take part in selecting the best and brightest upcoming ambassadors for the VET sector.

This is your opportunity to salute outstanding students in these categories that have shown such a high level of commitment, discipline, and resilience to shine in their training and overcome the challenges.

Voting can be done online and closes Monday 27 September.

The 2021 NSW Training Awards will go live (virtually) at 4.30pm on Saturday 9 October via Facebook Live on
