604 Australians have been recognised with Orders of Australia on Australia Day 2016. As always, members of the tertiary education sector featured strongly in the honours list, with 77 awards (81 in 2015), particularly in the upper categories. People associated with the tertiary sector received 4 out of the 11 Companion awards (36%), 24 out of 45 Officer awards (53%), 36 of 174 Member awards (20.6%), for 27.4% of the higher awards (33% in 2015) . In the most common category, Medal of the order, only 15 of 374 awards were tertiary sector related people (3.7%). Women continue to be under represented with 40% of all awards, mainly in the Medal category; still, that’s up from 33% in 2015. Only two of the tertiary sector awards were to people in the VET sector (excluding the two chancellors of dual sector universities who received AM awards).
In the Australian honours system appointments to the Order of Australia confer recognition for outstanding achievement and service. The order has four levels :
- The Companion of the Order of Australia is awarded for “eminent achievement and merit of the highest degree in service” to Australia or humanity at large.
- The Officer of the Order is awarded for “distinguished service”.
- The Member of the Order is awarded for “significant service”.
- The Medal of the Order is awarded for “service”.
