School-based Apprentice of the Year

Sponsored by GTNT.

Winner: Liam May - Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician

School: Darwin High School
Employer: Electric NT Pty Ltd
Registered training provider: Advanced Training International

Liam may be the youngest at his trade school but he is achieving some of the highest grades - 100% in some assessments.

Liam's commitment to his school-based apprenticeship sees him attending trade school and working during school holidays. He is currently studying four subjects in year 12, as well as undertaking his apprenticeship and working towards gaining his Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician.

Since year 10 he has chosen subjects that will assist him in becoming an electrician. He gained a White Card and Ochre Card before starting his apprenticeship so he would be work-site ready as soon as he signed on.

His mum reckons he was born to work in the electrical industry, tinkering with things and having a fascination with lights and how they work.

Liam's long term goal is to have his own electrical contracting business in the NT.

Runner up: Kane Andrews - Certificate III in Carpentry

School: Good Shepherd Lutheran College
Employer: System Homes
Registered training provider: Charles Darwin University
