NT Training Awards

The NT Training Awards are a prestigious celebration of excellence in vocational education and training (VET), recognising the achievements of Territory individuals, businesses and training providers across the VET sector. Now in its 63rd year, the NT Training Awards distinguish those who are the very best in their fields and promotes continuous improvement and innovation in the design and delivery of VET.

The awards provide a unique opportunity for sponsors to give back to the sector and show their support of the Territory’s future workforce and the local business community. Sponsorship will assist in recognising outstanding achievements by Territory apprentices, trainees, vocational students, training practitioners, training organisations, businesses and industry.

The NT Training Awards also provides a pathway to national acknowledgement of the Territory’s vocational education and training sector with winners of the NT Training Awards provided the opportunity to go on to represent the Northern Territory at the Australian Training Awards in Sydney in November 2018.
