Winners in the NSW State Training Awards 2015


The 2015 NSW Training Awards celebrate 60 years of recognising Vocational Education and Training in NSW; and the first regional Awards nights have kicked off.

The Australian Training Awards are the national awards for the vocational education and training (VET) sector, recognising vocational students, employers, training providers and individuals for their contribution to skilling Australia. Winners from the NSW Training Awards will have the opportunity to compete with other states and territories to be named the best in Australia at the Australian Training Awards later this year.

Within each region there are extraordinarily talented individuals across a range of vocations, so its no mean feat to be nominated as a finalist, let alone be recognised as the category winner in the region.  


Congratulations to the Bay to Bay NSW State Training Awards Finalists and Winners

The Bay to Bay Awards were held last night (Thursday 11 June) to celebrate the achievements of trainees, apprentices and vocational students and teachers in the region.

The College was proud to support a Vocational Student of the Year finalist - Amanda.

It was good to see Ian Kingsley back as the Master of Ceremonies. Ian retired in 2007 as the Director of Apprenticeships and Traineeships and so has a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience about the contribution of apprentices and trainees and their employers to the NSW economy. Ian kept the event running smoothly, and a great night was had by all. So congratulations to the Bay to Bay organising committee, with special mention to the Chatswood State Training Services team for their efforts supporting the committee to make the night a success.

The Bay to Bay awards cover the Sydney region, from Botany Bay in the south to Broken Bay in the north. The region attracts a diverse range and high volume of trainees and apprentice candidates for the awards. Finalists came from vocations in transport and distribution; maritime operations; live production and theatre; hospitality; business administration; plumbing; meat processing; cabinetmaking; formwork; business; commercial cookery; retail and the College finalist in Management.  


The Australian College of Commerce and Management is a long time sponsor of the awards and is proud to acknowledge and promote the success and contributions made by the vocational education sector.

The College finalist for Vocational Trainee of the Year, Amanda, completed the Diploma of Management with the support of her employer and long term College client IMB building society.

The 2015 NSW Training Awards regional award presentations continue over the next 2 weeks. Good luck to all candidates.
