GOTAFE has been named as a finalist in two categories in the 2020 Victorian Training Awards this week: the Large Training Provider of the Year and Inclusive Provider of the Year Awards.

Now in its 66th year, the prestigious awards recognise outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations in the Victorian TAFE and training sector. Last year GOTAFE Trainer, Jodi Rechsteiner took home the Trainer of the year award

GOTAFE CEO, Travis Heeney said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be named as a finalist in two award categories this year. Two years ago, we embarked on an ambitious transformation journey to take GOTAFE from good to great, ensuring our students and our community are the central focus of everything we do. It’s fantastic to be recognised by our industry and our peers.”

"“GOTAFE is extremely proud of the role we play ensuring our communities have access to the highest quality training and education in an environment which welcomes everybody. GOTAFE is widely recognised as a leader in embedding social justice principles, with our newly-established Social Justice Charter one of the first of its kind for any TAFE in Australia."

With judging taking place over the next few weeks, this year’s winners will be announced in a virtual format later in the year.

The Minister for Training and Skills and Higher Education, Gayle Tierney said, “Despite the challenging year, these awards continue to highlight the strength of Victoria’s vocational education and training sector and we look forward to sharing these successes over the coming weeks and months.”

Our second-year Certificate III Art and Design students have commenced work on the 'Hand Medal Project' The Hand Medal Project is a collaborative effort that involves artists and jewellers around the world crafting medals to honour and give thanks to the service and sacrifice of our healthcare workers during this time.
