Being an ambassador

As a WA Training Awards winner or finalist, you’re an ambassador for vocational education and training in WA. Your success in your training and through the WA Training Awards will be an inspiration for others to follow a VWT pathway. As a WA Training Awards winner, you may be invited to participate in activities, including but not limited to:

  • photo and video shoots promoting your achievements;
  • media opportunities (speaking with local press, radio and online journalists);
  • panel discussions;
  • WA training forums;
  • national and state conferences;
  • judging for your category;
  • professional development days for award winners; and
  • industry/VET sector events.

Should you also win your category at the Australian Training Awards, you’ll be invited to promote the sector on a national scale through a variety of additional activities.

By sharing your experiences, advice and knowledge, you can encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to consider how vocational education and training could benefit them and potentially change their lives. In addition, you may be able to inspire employers and training providers to review their training methods and continue to make improvements. All WA Training Award finalists and winners, both in the individual and organisation categories, have a story worth sharing. You never know who might be listening and how this could expand their horizons.
