TED Awards 2019 Roundup: Celebrating Excellence in Training
On 20 November 2019, seven companies were represented at the 2019 JobsCentral Learning Training & Education Development (T.E.D.) Awards to receive recognition for their achievements in education and training. Held at the Westin this year, the annual ceremony lauds the efforts of private education institutes (P.E.I.s) and corporate training providers (C.T.P.s), in addressing learning needs, resolving challenges and demonstrating success in delivering category-specific initiatives.
