The TAFE SA Honour Awards 2022

It’s that time again. We’re honouring our high-achieving alumni through the TAFE SA Honour Awards 2022.

The Awards celebrate success across career levels, industries, and communities. From tradies to health workers, artists to IT professionals, defence experts to hospitality connoisseurs – TAFE SA alumni make outstanding contributions to local, national, and international communities.

We want to honour their accomplishments — but we need your help to tell their stories. We’re now calling for nominations.

We all deserve recognition for our achievements

  • The TAFE SA Honour Awards recognise success in all its diversity – we want to honour the rising stars and the established industry leaders.  
  • You can nominate a friend, a work colleague, a former student, a family member, or yourself – because it’s also important to recognise your own achievements.
  • An expert panel of judges representing TAFE SA and industry will shortlist finalists and winners.
  • Finalists will be invited to a prestigious award ceremony at Adelaide Town Hall hosted by The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of Adelaide.
  • Finalists will have the opportunity to network with the TAFE SA Chief Executive David Coltman, TAFE SA Board, government and industry leaders, and other distinguished guests. Winners may be profiled across both media and digital media platforms.
  • The nomination process is quick, easy, and accessible. To submit a nomination, please fill in the online form below. If you’d prefer an alternative submission format, we will also accept responses to the questions in a voice (mp3) or video (mp4) recording. Please send this to
