2022 Tasmanian Training Awards


Nominations for the 2022 Awards close on Monday, 30 May. There’s still time to nominate so start your application today.

As the peak awards for vocational education and training (VET) in Tasmania, the annual Training Awards recognise, reward and celebrate outstanding achievements in the VET sector.

There are 14 general award categories and a special individual award – The Trevor Leo Medal – awarded for outstanding leadership and contribution to the VET sector in Tasmania.

For employers and registered training organisations the awards are the ideal platform to showcase their commitment to VET. For VET teachers, trainers and students the awards provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate their achievements and hard work.

If you would like to talk through the process, call Jacqui Maclaine on 03 6165 6008.

Agriculture funding available for NW business

Skills Tasmania has released funding to support north-west Tasmania’s agricultural sector over the next two years through the North-West Agriculture Skills Delivery Program. 

Agriculture industry employers in that area can access subsidised training places for their staff.  Industry support to access the training subsidy will be provided by RTV Training.

This support will include advice to industry on training options to meet their needs and support them to understand the career pathways in their organisation.

Agriculture employers in north-west Tasmania should contact RTV training for advice on their training needs.

More details can be found on the Skills Tasmania website and through RTV Training.

Tasmanian Training Subsidy Policy

The Tasmanian Government subsidises the cost of training in recognition of the public benefit that Tasmania derives from a skilled population. The balance of the cost of training is charged by RTOs to learners or employers. 

The level of support for government-subsidised training is determined by the Tasmanian Training Subsidy Policy.

All RTOs and organisations applying for Skills Tasmania funding are encouraged to read the policy.

The rates outlined in the policy will apply from 21 April 2022 to all new applications for relevant grant programs.

The subsidy policy is available here
