Nominations now open for the 2020 NT Training Awards
Nominations for the 65th Northern Territory Vocational Education and Training (VET) awards, run by the NT Department of Trade, Business and Innovation, are now open.
The premier event recognises training excellence and achievements by Territory businesses, training organisations, trainers, apprentices, trainees and students, including those involved in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector.
NT Senior Executive Director for Business and Workforce Cathy White said the awards “demonstrate the diversity of training in the Territory, with nominations received from a variety of sectors including electro technology, carpentry, mechanical technology, digital media, health, fitness, management, retail, agriculture, hospitality, childcare and construction.”
The awards offer the opportunity for the achievements of those living in remote areas of the Northern Territory to be recognised. In 2019, one quarter of nominees came from remote areas such as Jabiru, Nhulunbuy, Alyangula and Lajamanu.
“The awards offer finalists the chance to gain personal success and to be recognised as part of an elite group of ambassadors who represent the Territory’s best. Winners and runners-up of each category receive a share in cash prizes, and have the opportunity to represent the Northern Territory at the Australia Training Awards,” Ms White said.
There are 13 award categories, comprising of eight categories for individuals and five for organisations.
Individuals, businesses and organisations who are “making a difference in the vocational education and training sector and who deserve to be recognised” can be nominated here.
Winners will be announced at the annual Gala Dinner at the Darwin Convention Centre on Saturday, 19 September 2020. Nominations close 18 May 2020 at 5pm ACST.
