The Awards process
If you’re considering applying for a WA Training Award and want to know exactly what is involved, the Awards process page is a great place to start. The process for individual category applicants and organisation applicants is outlined in detail, from the written application, to the judging process and the WA and Australian Training Awards presentation dinners.
Check out the application guide for the category or categories that interest you. Application guides include details on eligibility and selection criteria, key dates, how to use the application portal and other tips for applicants. Download the application guide for your category.
Applications must be submitted online through the WA Training Awards application portal. Register to create an account in the application portal early on so you can familiarise yourself with the portal and start an application when you’re ready.
You can save an application and go back in and edit it at any time during the application period. Be sure to submit your completed application before 5pm on Friday 13 May 2016!
Note: Once you register on the application portal, you must first confirm your account via the account confirmation email from WA Training Awards. You may need to check your spam/junk email folder.
Tools for applicants
Check out the Tools for applicants page of the WA Training Awards website for:
- examples of award winning applications (individual categories only);
- evidence guides – examples of evidence you can supply to support your responses to the selection criteria; and
- useful checklists to make sure you haven’t missed any important steps.
Required attachment templates
To make things easier we have created a range of useful templates and forms you may be required to fill in and submit with your application. Depending on the category you apply for, these templates include a:
- reference template;
- employer declaration template;
- parent/guardian declaration template;
- CEO/MD endorsement template; and
- talent release form.
Ensure you give yourself and your referees, employers or parents plenty of time to complete these attachments.
