UNDER an initiative by local business Hip Pocket Workwear and Safety and supported by The Apprenticeship Factory, young apprentices in the region are being awarded for outstanding performance in the workplace.
All apprentices employed through The Apprenticeship Factory are eligible for nomination with one apprentice each month being selected and awarded with a brand new pair of steel capped work boots valued at more than $100.
This month’s winner is local Tatura based 1st year Apprentice Carpenter, Daniel Ellis. Daniel was nominated for the award by his host employer, Ron Desira from NAR Constructions.
Ron said the young apprentice is very deserving. “He is continually learning and tries really hard. When someone can show you they’re really trying, then they should be rewarded.”
“He’s come a very long way since he began, not only in his ability to learn but also in his character, he has really opened up,” Ron said.
The Apprenticeship Factory Field Officer, Lindsay Jennings said, “I like it when I see an apprentice with host employers who give them the opportunity to grow within their industry and get as much experience as they can within their trade. And Ron provides that ideal kind of workplace for Daniel.”
