We received applications from members all over Australia, and were so impressed by the calibre and talent of our entrants. This year we will also have prizes for first second and third in the competition.

“This is the fourth time we have held the ETU National Apprentice of the Year competition and year after year we continue to see outstanding applications coming through from our members. All applicants should be congratulated on their outstanding contributions to their chosen trade and to our proud Union,” said ETU national apprenticeship officer Mark Burgess.
