Wurreker Awards

VAEAI’s Annual Wurreker Awards are an important part of our approach to growing success in Koorie education and training. The awards display through celebration how high quality training can open up new directions for Koorie people. This promotion of excellence has a real impact on our communities and on all stakeholders who support the ongoing development of the strategy.

Under the Wurreker Strategy VAEAI recognises students, trainers, training providers and employers who have achieved outstanding results in their areas of knowledge and expertise. These individual and collective efforts provide an inspiring example of the potential within our communities.
