School-based Apprentice of the Year

Sponsored by GTNT.

Winner: Teague Masterson - Certificate III in Engineering (Mechanical Trade)

School: Good Shepherd Lutheran College
Employer: Hastings Deering
Registered training provider: Charles Darwin University

As a youngster, Teague Masterson could often be found out the back in the shed, helping his step dad fix his trucks. He says securing his school-based apprenticeship at Hastings Deering in 2010 over a very competitive field has given him the chance to create a career out of something he loves.

Teague attends extra maths classes before and after school to assist him in his apprenticeship. He describes himself as a hands-on person who learns best in an on-the-job environment, but he is willing to undertake more formal learning to help him achieve his goal of becoming a qualified diesel fitter.

He sets high standards and is aware of the importance of setting a good example to new trainees and apprentices. He advises other students looking at pursuing a similar path to look at something you know you are going to enjoy doing for a length of time, then get advice from parents, teachers and employers.

Teague also plays league for the Litchfield Bears and enjoys working out at the gym.

Runner up: Lachlan Johnstone - Certificate III in Electrotechnology
