Apply now for the 2018 Australian Apprenticeships – Employer Award

The Australian Apprenticeships - Employer Award will be presented at the 2018 Australian Training Awards and recognises those employers who have made innovative improvements in training which benefit the outcomes for their apprentices and/or trainees in Australia.

The winner of the award in 2017, was SA Power Networks. About the win, Angela Corker, Manager Learning and Development says,

“It makes you more attractive as an employer of choice and enhances your reputation.

“Completing an award application is a great internal health check, even if you don’t win, because it forces you to examine where you’ve come from, where you want to go, your statistics and other data and even stories from those working for you.

“The process has also helped our owners, management and team recognise how far we’ve come and identify gaps where we could improve.

“Our win validated our investment in training and our safety standards.”

How to apply

Applications for the Award are made directly to the Australian Training Awards by completing the nomination form on the website. Applications close 31 May 2018.
