Member for Sandgate, Stirling Hinchliffe, encouraged Northsiders to apply to be recognised for their hard work in training.

“These awards celebrate and acknowledge the hard work of Queensland’s top training achievers,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“I encourage eligible Queenslanders – such as apprentices, trainees and trainers – along with employers, training and community-based organisations to apply.

Mr Hinchliffe said the Queensland Training Awards was an opportunity to shine a light on our state’s highest achievers in training.

“By continuing to recognise and celebrate Queensland’s outstanding achievers in training, we can continue to raise the bar in our successful Vocational Education and Training sector in Queensland,” he said.

“The awards will also give some of Queensland’s winners the chance to compete at a national level and be recognised at the Australian Training Awards.

The Queensland Training Awards are run by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.
