About the Awards and Governance

The Department of Education and the Key Stakeholder Advisory Group (KSAG) for early childhood and school age education and care established the Northern Territory Education and Care Awards in 2013.

The annual awards aim to:

  • recognise and promote quality and outstanding achievement across the education and care sector
  • build the capacity and profile of the education and care sector
  • promote the professionalism of the education and care sector
  • provide a networking opportunity for educators, service operators and stakeholders.


To ensure the integrity of the awards separate organisations are appointed to manage the logistics and the judging of the awards.
