William Angliss Institute wins big

The William Angliss Institute has won the Australian Large Training Provider of the Year at the Australian Training Awards.

The award recognises a training organisation with over 50 qualifications that demonstrates excellence and a high level of performance in all areas of vocational training and education.

William Angliss Institute is a specialist training centre for the foods, tourism, hospitality and events industries.

The institute offers short courses, vocational programs, bachelor and master’s degrees as well as training and consulting services for businesses.

William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt said the institute was “honoured” to be recognised as a “national leader” in training.

“Through the disruptions associated with the pandemic, our staff, students and industry partners have done amazing work which we wanted to acknowledge and celebrate with our nomination,” Hunt said.

“Even with remote learning [we] were lucky to have guest lecturers, virtual site visits, and partnerships for student assessments so students had real-world experience while studying with us.”

In the award application, Hunt said the Institute’s commitment to student services such as mental health support and learning assistance, as well as unique partnerships to build students’ experiences, were all highlighted.

“We are intrinsically linked with the industries we support,” he said.

“We’ve also had the chance to upgrade facilities and have had more job opportunities for our students than ever, showing there is definitely demand for well- trained graduates looking for a career in foods, tourism, events and hospitality.”

William Angliss Institute has a campus in Melbourne and Sydney, as well as trainers across Australia and at international training facilities.

Enrolments are currently open for courses starting in February 2022.
