Deputy Premier and Minister for Skills, John Barilaro, said the NSW Training Awards are the premier recognition for Vocational Education and Training (VET) in NSW.
“These awards provide a platform for us to celebrate the achievements of all those involved in the success of Smart and Skilled – the government’s training framework which provides eligible students in NSW with access to high-quality, affordable training that meets the needs of industry and which leads to jobs,” he said.
Winners from the NSW Training Awards will be announced in September. The winners have the opportunity to compete with other states and territories to be named the best in Australia at the Australian Training Awards.
