Community Colleges Australia (CCA) has called for nominations for its sixth annual Community Education Student of the Year Awards.
These Awards celebrate the achievements of Australia’s adult and community education students, based on career and study; communication, team and leadership skills; and community and other activities.
Eligibility: This year’s nominations are students who have undertaken formal study with an Australian not-for-profit adult and community education (ACE) organisation during the period 1 September 2021 through 31 August 2022. Nominations are to be submitted through the student’s community education provider, with a maximum of two nominations per provider.
The Awards ceremony will take place in the Sydney CBD on Tuesday 7 February 2023 at 330pm, with remote participation possible.
Decisions on the Award winner/s will be based on the nominating organisation’s nomination, based on career and study achievements; communication, team and leadership skills development; and achievements in areas other than study and work, including community involvement. Nominated students must be at least 18 years old, and be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Organisations do not have to be a member of CCA to nominate a student. More details on judging criteria can be found in the Terms and Conditions (PDF).
Funding for the 2022 Awards has been provided by the New South Wales Government.

The triangle at the base of the figure represents the boost provided by the ACE provider, which supports and facilitates student confidence and learning. The multi-shaded vertical parallel lines, reaching upwards, embody the students’ potential and choice of pathways as they journey through life.
