Australian Training Awards and the LearnX Awards

So it is that time of year again

submissions have just opened for a number of Training and Learning awards in Australia.  First cab off the rank is the Queensland Training Awards for excellence in VET sector training.  The  awards are a fantastic experience and can lead  onto the Australian Training Awards for the winners of the state rounds.  In addition to this the National Focus Categories  of the Australian Training Awards are also open.

In addition to these the LearnX Foundation in conjunction with their LearnX Learning Innovations Conference have just released their awards categories for 2013 including ‘Learning Manager of the Year’ which was won last year by the wonderful and outstandingly talented Natalie Goldman.

So I would encourage everyone in the training industry in Australia to get involved, look at the categories and see what yo might like to take a swing at.  I think entering these competitions is a good way, if nothing else, of focussing yourself on the successes of the previous year as well as those things you perhaps didn’t go as well, and who knows you might even end up with some recognition.
