The Western Australian Training Awards (WATA) is the State’s premier awards program recognising excellence in vocational education and training (VET) and the outstanding achievements of WA students, apprentices and trainees, practitioners and training providers, organisations and employers.
The Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) places the highest priority on the safety and health of our students, training providers and extended communities. Unfortunately, the measures adopted in response to COVID-19, together with the rapidly evolving situation in Western Australia, have led to a decision to cancel the 2020 WATA program. Whilst DTWD realises this will be disappointing for those who were applying, their decision aligns with the State Government’s position at this time.
