​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​About the awards

​The Queensland Training Awards have celebrated the state's top training achievers for the past 55 years.

Across 14​ categories, the awards recognise individuals and organisations that strive for and hav​​e achieved success, best practice and innovation in vocational education and training (VET).

The award​s showcase all that's great about VET in Queensland, with categories for apprentices, trainees, vocational students, teachers and trainers, as well as training providers and employers.​

Aw​ards structure​

For individual and employer categories, nominees must first compete at a regional l​evel. Regional winners then contest their category at the state level - competing against other regional winners for a coveted Queensland Training Award.

Eleven award categories are initially contested across seven regional areas - Tropical North Queensland, North Queensland, Centr​​al Queensland, Darling Downs South West, North Coast, Metropolitan and South East.

Regional winners will automatically be selected as state finalists.

Trainin​g provider and industry collaboration awards are direct entry categories and are only​ awarded at the state level.

State winners for each category are automatically nominated for national honours as part of the Austra​lian Training​ Awards ( https://training.qld.gov.au/_layouts/15/FIXUPREDIRECT.ASPX?WebId=f4c7a538-2e44-484f-b78e-f66803d92a2a&TermSetId=af7e2422-76f1-4fe3-a4f5-2cec1a585de4&TermId=6e49069a-fc7b-4e5c-96ef-30486a77e7c3 ).
