FOCUS OF THE NZATD 2018 ON JOB TRAINER / COACH OF THE YEAR AWARD – Applications close 13 April 2018NZATD L&D Awards


NZATD, in association with the NZATD Education Trust, introduced the L&D On the Job / Coach award to raise the profile, recognise and reward the pool of people in the workplace that are involved in both informal and formal workplace learning and assessment.  These people may be in roles such as on job coaches, on job trainers, or line management roles where training and/or coaching staff is a key responsibility.  These people play a critical role in the upskilling of the New Zealand workforce with a subsequent increase in productivity for their organisation and, collectively, the productivity of New Zealand.  It is envisaged that the workplaces could include any industrial, commercial, private, public or not-for profit organisation.


Those eligible for this award will not necessarily be full time training professionals.  We are also seeking out those people who have operational or managerial roles but nevertheless spend a significant part of their time actively supporting others in their learning and/or creating valuable learning environments to foster on job training.


Entrants should be working in New Zealand or, be a New Zealander citizen or permanent resident working overseas, or work for a New Zealand company or New Zealand division of an international company. Membership of NZATD is not required to place an entry in the awards.
