Ambassador preparation weekend

An important part of the annual Northern Territory Training Awards process is the ambassador preparation weekend. All individual category finalists are required to attend and stay onsite for the duration of the weekend.

This weekend provides professional development sessions and valuable networking opportunities with the intent of better preparing individual finalists to act as ambassadors for the vocational education and training system and mentor future students interested in taking up the challenge of training.

The weekend will provide finalists with the tools and resources to enable them to confidently step into their judging interview.

Finalists will also gain some valuable experiences and tools that will complement their journey both through the rest of the awards process and in their chosen career. As well as this, finalists will meet some amazing people, make great contacts and friends, and have a whole lot of fun.


The Ambassador Preparation Weekend will be held from Saturday 15 to Sunday 16 August at the Darwin Convention Centre.

Note: Individual category finalist attendance at this weekend is compulsory. All regional individual category finalists will be accommodated on site for the duration of the weekend.

Individual category finalists include:

  • Austin Asche Apprentice of the Year
  • Trainee of the Year
  • Vocational Student of the Year
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year
  • School-Based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year
  • VET in Schools Student of the Year
