Applications for the WA Training Awards 2018 are now open.
The WA Training Awards are an opportunity for the Western Australian training sector to showcase excellence, inspire future talent and reward best practice.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery recently launched the awards while visiting the facilities at North Metropolitan TAFE's Pavilion Restaurant.
The awards recognise and reward the achievements of apprentices, trainees and vocational students and the contribution of trainers, training organisations and employers. As one of the biggest employing industries in WA, it is anticipated the awards will feature many entrants from the hospitality sector. The industry employs some 97,000 Western Australians and continues to grow.
The Pavilion Restaurant is a training facility functioning as a fine dining restaurant to provide real life training experiences for hospitality students from North Metropolitan TAFE. Pavilion-trained chefs have secured coveted positions at some of the world's most renowned restaurants including Eleven Madison Park in New York City and the Fat Duck in London.
North Metropolitan TAFE has also had a long and successful history with the WA Training Awards. Trainer of the Year Jane Goodfellow is a trainer at the college and last year it had eight finalists in individual categories, as well as being a finalist in the Large Training Provider of the Year category.
