The WA Training Awards highlight excellence in vocational education and training (VET) and celebrate the best students, trainers, organisations and employers in the Western Australian training sector.
If you’re an apprentice, trainee or vocational student, the WA Training Awards can open doors to new career opportunities and highlight your skills and achievements. Winners of each category(opens in a new tab) will receive $3000 to kickstart their career or to put towards further study, as well as the recognition and other opportunities of this prestigious award.
This is something that Bethan Clarke knows all too well. She was crowned the 2020 WA Apprentice of the Year after achieving her Certificate III in Process Plant Operations through apprenticeship arrangements with Programmed and South Metropolitan TAFE.
Bethany believes that being a female in a male-dominated industry has pushed her to become a more confident version of herself. She is passionate about advocating for bringing more women into the industry.
"The WA Training Awards provided an incredible opportunity for me to get my story out there and inspire other young women to complete VET training" she says.
