New Award To Celebrate Inclusive Training

An award to recognise Victorian training providers  with an outstanding record delivering training to students with a disability will be introduced through a new award at the 2018 Victorian Training Awards.

Minister for Training and Skills Gayle Tierney encouraged eligible training providers to nominate for the new Victorian Inclusive Training Provider of the Year Award, which will be presented for the first time at the awards in Melbourne later this year.

The award is open to all TAFEs and private Registered Training Organisations across Melbourne and regional Victoria that have brought in innovative changes to support the achievement, engagement and wellbeing of students with additional needs.

Now in their 64th year, the Victorian Training Awards celebrate collaboration and innovation across the state’s training sector by recognising the outstanding achievements of vocational education and training students, teachers and the businesses and training providers who train them.

The broader community will also have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award, which is presented to a finalist in an individual student category and announced at the Awards ceremony.

Applications for the 2018 Victorian Training Awards close midnight on 13 April 2018. Students and organisations interested in nominating should go to www.education.vic.gov.au/vta.
