MySkills 2019 Australian Training Awards: Recognising exceptional talent in the vocational education space
Beginning in 1994, the Australian Training Awards is an annual event held for the vocational education and training sector (VET).
The Awards have been developed to recognise the contribution made by individuals, business and registered training organisations (RTOs), in their ability to effectively build the skill sets of Australians.
This year, the 2019 Australian Training Awards will be held in Brisbane, Queensland on Thursday 21 November.
Our strong VET sector is preparing Australians with the skills employers need now and into the future.
This year’s impressive finalists showcase the outstanding career opportunities offered by vocational education and training.

RTO 2018 Winners and Finalists – What made them stand out?
According to the Australian Training Awards website, the winners and finalists selected for each award were selected as they were ‘high performing’ and ‘high quality’ institutes, whose courses directly support the fulfillment of its state’s skills requirements.
Strong industry engagement and close collaboration with each provider’s corresponding industry area also held great value when nominating, alongside prioritising industry qualifications in state skill shortage areas and maintaining a team of industry experts and active staff in professional fields.
When looking at the finalists and the winner for the ‘International Training Provider of the Year 2018’ award, it is clear that a unique delivery model and valuable partnerships with quality Australian universities is highly sought after, as this collaboration provides international students with multiple pathway opportunities. Conducting research such as market analysis through country profiles and employer surveys also demonstrates initiative and a clear dedication to international students; a quality that stands out against other institutions.
