Application templates

You must include specific documents when you submit your application.

To make it easier, we have provided templates that you can download and use.

Draft templates

These templates are helpful when preparing your application as well as checking spelling, grammar and word counts, and for sharing with a friend to review.

Use the draft application template to work on your application offline, before cutting and pasting into your online application. Do not attach the draft template – you must complete all online response fields.


Required attachment templates

All applicants

All applicants must submit a signed talent release form.


Individual applicants

All individual category applicants must provide at least one written reference from either an employer/host employer or lecturer.


If employed at the time of applying, applicants must provide an employer endorsement.


If currently studying at school, applicants must submit a school endorsement.


If under 18 years of age, applicants must submit a parent/guardian declaration.


Trainer of the year applicants

All trainer applicants must provide a Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director endorsement.


Organisation applicants

All organisation category applicants must provide a Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director endorsement.


Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to put these documents together.
