William Angliss Institute – Australia’s largest dedicated training centre for foods, tourism, hospitality and events – has been awarded the coveted Victorian Large Training Provider of the Year for 2013 at this year’s Victorian Training Awards.
The State Government award was presented to the institute’s chief executive officer Nicholas Hunt at the gala award ceremony, which was hosted by Minister for Higher Education and Skills Peter Hall.
The award is presented to a registered training organisation that has demonstrated outstanding achievements in all aspects of the delivery of vocational education and training. The institute, which offers short courses, apprenticeships, traineeships, certificates, diplomas and bachelor degrees, enrols more than 21,500 students annually across its Melbourne and Sydney campuses and partner campuses overseas.
“This award recognises the significant achievements of William Angliss Institute over the past 12 months and is a testament to the dedication and ongoing commitment by institute staff to ensure we remain a leading specialist training organisation, now and into the future”, Nicholas said.
“As the only specialist training organisation of our kind in Australia, we have been steadfast in our commitment to maintaining close working relationships with our many industry and community partners. This ensures our programs continue to meet the needs of industry, whilst making sure that our students are continually engaged and afforded the opportunities to support them in achieving their career ambitions.”
The institute will now turn its attention to the Australian Training Awards in November, as it flies the flag for Victoria as its Large Training Provider of the Year nominee.
