Western Australian Training Awards

The WA Training Awards is WA’s premier awards program recognising excellence in vocational education and training and the outstanding achievements of our students, apprentices and trainees.

Winners come away with $3000 to put towards further training or to kick-start their career! 

NMTAFE students have had great success at the awards, with winners now excelling in their field from designing a new City of Perth logo to starting their own business. Our students have also gone on to win the national Australian Training Awards. You can read all about our past finalists and winners below.
