2021 Australian Training Awards

Congratulations to our Tasmanian finalists.

Skills Tasmania’s watch party for the live-streamed Australian Training Awards was held on Thursday, 18 November at Wrest Point with an excited crowd including our Tasmanian national finalists in attendance.

While there were no Tasmanian winners this year, it was a great night to come together and celebrate the successes of our vocational education and training sector across the last 12 months.

We’ll be bringing you the stories of our six finalists and their training and career journeys so far in the coming months.  

For more information about our finalists, please visit our website.

'With a GTO you’re Good to Go' campaign launch

Skills Tasmania has released the With a GTO you’re Good to Go campaign, aimed at raising the awareness of the benefits of Group Training Organisations (GTOs) for Tasmanian businesses.

There are significant benefits for Tasmanian small and medium enterprises to take up the services of a GTO to manage the process of recruiting and managing apprentices and trainees.

The campaign focuses on these advantages and encourages businesses to explore options with Tasmania’s GTOs.

Trade Training Centres (TTCs) and Trades Skills Centres (TSCs)

Trade Training Centres (TTCs) and Trades Skills Centres (TSCs) deliver quality Vocational Education and Training (VET) to learners and provide an exciting opportunity to promote the benefits of VET more broadly.

TTCs are open to school students and adult learners and provide localised access to industry-standard trade training facilities. The use of these high-standard facilities provides the opportunity to establish new pathways into VET and to promote the benefits of quality VET to the community, including learners and industry.

For more information about TTCs and TSCs, please visit the website.

TTCs are located throughout Tasmania’s regions and are available for use by RTOs to deliver training within those communities. If you are interested in using the facilities at TTCs please contact
