Principal partner

The Apprenticeship Employment Network (AEN) and the Global Apprenticeship Network – (GAN Australia) are proud to be the principal partner of the Victorian Training awards for the next three years.

Our Association has had a long partnership with the Victorian Government and these training awards. Over the past 30 years, our members have employed and supported over 180,000 apprentices and trainees in a wide range of industries across regional and metropolitan Victoria – outcomes that could not be achieved without a strong VET system.

The Victorian Training Awards, now in their 65th year recognise and honour outstanding achievements and contributions to the Victorian training, apprenticeship and TAFE system.

The Awards foster greater connections and collaboration, bringing together students, teachers, training providers, employers and industry, sharing and promoting a high quality training system that meets the needs of all Victorians.

Congratulations to all the award nominees and finalists.

We look forward to sharing and promoting your achievements so more young people, parents, schools and employers can see the real value in gaining vocational skills for a career in a world that is constantly evolving.

Your passion, hard work and success is a shining example of just how far vocational training can take you.
