Application Support Resource page
The application support resource page has been created to provide as much information, help and support as possible as you work your way through the application form. You can click through from the application form at if you need assistance or more information on a particular question, or you can read it on its own to familarise yourself with the form.
Before you start
To get the most out of your application, consider the following:
- Which of your training, learning and development initiatives is the most outstanding?
- What is the initiative and what is it meant to achieve?
- How does the initiative encourage training best practice and how does it support the organisation?
- How does the initiative help employees?
- How does the initiative promote your organisation’s commitment to learning and skills development?
Thinking of applying? Have a look at the submission process to see what it entails.
Your application is more likely to be successful if you provide supporting evidence for each of the three Hallmarks. You will be prompted to upload an evidence document for each Hallmark.
Please note that you can only upload one document per Hallmark, and each upload must be under 2MB in size and be no more than 500 words.
We provide a range of support options throughout the application process including virtual workshop sessions, one-to-one calls and email support.
In 2021 we began offering the chance to submit an early draft of your application for some feedback. If you are able to draft answers to the questions in the three hallmark sections by 28 February, an Assessor will provide some feedback which you can implement into your final application.
