Ambassador preparation weekend
An important part of the annual NT Training Awards process is the residential ambassador preparation weekend. All individual category finalists are required to attend and stay onsite for the duration of the weekend.
This residential weekend provides professional development sessions and valuable networking opportunities with the intent of better preparing individual finalists to act as ambassadors for the VET 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.
