Excellence Awards Finalists Announced

We are thrilled to announce the finalists of the 2021 AITD Excellence Awards. Coveted by companies across Australia and beyond, these awards recognise outstanding achievement in learning and development. Competition is high and the judging process is rigorous to ensure only the best submissions walk away with an award.

This year saw a record number of entries – which is a testament to the role L&D departments have played in helping workforces adapt to the new circumstances of a worldwide pandemic, in addition to the crucial work they have always done. Not every entry makes it to finalist stage so everyone on this list should be proud of their achievement.
