TAC Education Program 2019


As part of the Training Accreditation Council’s (TAC) commitment to provide RTOs and their staff with professional development opportunities, TAC is pleased to announce its Education Program schedule for 2019.


TAC Education Program sessions aim to build capability and support RTOs and their staff in understanding their obligations under the Standards for RTOs.


In determining the topics for 2019, TAC was informed by its Annual Regulatory Strategy, outcomes of audits undertaken, complaint information received and feedback from 2018 workshop participants.


Registration information for workshops and webinars will be released throughout the year via the TAC newsletter and TAC website announcements.

2019 WA Training Awards


The Council is supporting the 2019 WA Training Awards, by sponsoring the WA Trainer of the Year category.


The Awards recognise and reward individuals and organisations that have excelled in vocational education and training (VET) – from apprentices, trainees and vocational students, to training professionals, training providers and employers committed to the training and development of their staff.


There are a number of award categories and people and organisations from across Western Australia and from all areas of training are encouraged to nominate for the Awards.


The Council is proud to support the WA Trainer of the Year category and encourages all RTOs to promote the awareness of the Awards within their organisations and colleagues within the VET sector.


For more information and to apply for the awards, click here.


Applications close on Friday 3 May 2019 and the Awards will be announced at a presentation ceremony to be held in Perth on Friday 13 September 2019.


The 2019 WA Training Awards are coordinated by the Department of Training and Workforce Development and the State Training Board.
