ABBTF’s Victorian State Manager, Jane Alexander, was a guest at the recent Master Builders Victoria 2016 State Apprentice of the Year awards. In this newsletter she reports on the Melbourne event where bricklayers featured strongly among the winners. All finalists in their given trade had previously won their Regional classification that then followed with a panelist of interviewers determining the final winners in each State category.
It was a great evening with over 600 apprentices from all trades, family members, employers, training organisations and industry people attending the evening. The purpose of the event is to celebrate and reward the hard work and commitment each apprentice has put into training during 2015.
