Healthy training industry is key to delivering job opportunities for WA


Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery today announced the organisational finalists for the 2017 WA Training Awards from across the State.

 

The organisational finalists represent the efforts and achievements of individuals, employers and training providers in the State.

 

Small training provider finalist, Auswest Specialist Education and Training Services, provides training in WA prisons. As a result of their training programs, reoffending rates have decreased and they have seen an increase in employment retention for prisoners post custody.

 

Finalists in the individual categories for apprentices, trainees, students and trainers will be announced next month.

 

Winners will be announced at a presentation dinner to be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday, September 15, 2017.

 

The WA Training Awards are presented by the Department of Training and Workforce Development and the State Training Board. For more information, visit http://www.dtwd.wa.gov.au/trainingawards
