NZATD Learning and Development Awards 2022


NZATD Learning and Development Awards 2022

In association with Complete Learning Solutions

The NZATD Awards are about recognising and celebrating excellence within our community.  We are thrilled to bring you the NZATD Awards 2022.

NZATD regularly reviews the awards categories to make sure they are current and relevant to the industry.  For 2022 we continue to align the awards with the NZATD Competency Framework, however some changes have been made based on feedback from members, entrants, and judges. We are excited to offer a range of individual and initiative awards that reflect the outstanding work being done by L&D professionals around New Zealand.

The individual awards are presented to individuals for their contributions to the field of L&D and the community.  The initiative awards are presented to an organisation, team or individual for a learning project or initiative that demonstrates best practice. There is one winner per category.

The awards are open to any member of the New Zealand L&D community (except for the NZATD National Executive). Entrants must demonstrate how the person or chosen project meets the award criteria and  must be based in or work primarily for a New Zealand based organisation. Projects must have been completed within the last two years.

Applications have now closed and winners will be announced at the NZATD Awards 2022 Gala Dinner on 22 September in Wellington.
