1 2015 Master Builders Association of Victoria State Apprentice of the Year Awards

2 2015 MASTER BUILDERS STATE APPRENTICE OF THE YEAR AWARDS Message from our CEO I congratulate you on your nominations as the most promising building trade apprentices in Victoria. You are among those recognised for your accomplishments at tonight s State Apprentice of the Year Awards. I trust this recognition will give you the determination and confidence to continue your trade qualification. I have no doubt your future will be better for it. Many people here this evening have been named as their region s best apprentice, a fantastic accomplishment that builds a strong foundation for the careers that lie ahead of you. If you take home an award tonight, it s because you have been selected as having the qualities it takes to become a future leader in our industry. It is both recognition of your talents and, we at Master Builders hope, an incentive to continue to be the best at what you do. To help you achieve success in your journey, I encourage you to visit ALink, a program designed specifically for apprentices. ALink provides the information and support you will need to thrive in the building industry. You can find out more at Radley de Silva Master Builders Association of Victoria Chief Executive Officer

3 These awards commenced with the judging of apprentices in Traralgon at the start of February, and finish with the State Apprentice of the Year Awards at the Pullman Hotel on 8 May. The Master Builders Careers team has travelled over 9000 kilometres, visited 10 regional towns (Traralgon, Ballarat, Bendigo, Benalla, Shepparton, Swan Hill, Robinvale, Mildura, Geelong and Warrnambool) and interviewed 212 apprentices from over 550 nominees. We have hosted eight awards nights, with a total attendance of over 2000 people, to recognise and reward outstanding apprentices across the State of Victoria. This year s award winners come from a variety of trades and a very broad range of backgrounds and personalities. It was indeed a pleasure to meet them all, and very reassuring to see that the future of our industry is in such promising and capable hands. We are also delighted to see both women and men pursuing their careers in the building industry. Master Builders would like to congratulate all of the winners and wish them good luck in their future endeavours. Judges: Metro Section Jim Johnston Claude Salvatore Sandy Grant Jonathan Forster Jarrod Flanigan South West Section Jarrod Flanigan Gippsland Section Trevor Bowler Ken Horstman Ballarat Section David Moyle Hayden Bromley Bendigo Section Ross O Neill Tony Johnston North West Section Simon Lever Aaron Cadd North East Section John Simpson James Briggs Geelong Section Mark Little Gary Watts

4 Matthew Baxter Brick and Blocklaying Apprentice of the Year 2015 Matthew is a dedicated bricklayer with a keen eye on his future. From the very start of his apprenticeship he recognised that hard work in his training would reap great awards, and we are happy to recognise those efforts. Matthew is a strong advocate for the bricklaying profession and has a very promising career ahead of him. Our congratulations to you, Matthew. Jason Blick Solid Plastering Apprentice of the Year 2015 Jason shared with us, Being able to stand back and appreciate the entire finished product is the most satisfying feeling, in part because you know it s the first thing the client and their friends will see. Jason shows passion for the traditional method of concrete rendering. He s a perfectionist eager to be the best in his trade. Winning this award shows you ve taken a big step in that direction, Jason. Congratulations. Keegan Whitbourn Carpentry Apprentice of the Year 2015 The judges said they had seldom seen an apprentice with such passion for their work. Keegan is a young man with a sense of ethics beyond his years; he recognises that a quality job will always be appreciated and valued highly. Keegan shows great respect for his boss, and demonstrates the high regard he believes every apprentice should have for their employer. Well done, Keegan. Danielle Shedden Joinery Apprentice of the Year 2015 Danielle took a bold step in making a career change and was rewarded by falling in love with her new trade as a joiner. Being a woman in a male-dominated profession is no distraction for her, and her eye for detail and precision are nothing short of remarkable. She is enthusiastic and respectful of her employer and colleagues, and receives the same in return. She is an outstanding apprentice. Our congratulations to you, Danielle.

5 Chris Parkinson Painting and Decorating Apprentice of the Year 2015 How does it feel to have over 20,000 people scrutinise your work every week? Ask Chris. When your office is Etihad Stadium it means your work is on public display. With strict time constraints, Chris is able to prioritise and complete his craft to a high standard-- one he sets himself. Good is not good enough, Chris says, and it is this attitude that makes him a winner. Congratulations, Chris. Kieran Shultz Roof Tiling and Slating Apprentice of the Year 2015 When asked what one needs to be a good roof tiler Kieran remarked, sensibly, Well, not being afraid of heights helps. Working primarily with slate roofs, Kieran s accuracy, precision and speed have marked him as an outstanding apprentice. He acknowledges that roofing is not a trade typically sought after by younger people, but he finds the teamwork and finished product extremely rewarding and highly motivating. Congratulations, Kieran. Stewart Hindley Wall and Ceiling Lining Apprentice of the Year 2015 The commitment and dedication Stewart has shown to his apprenticeship and employer made it simple for the judges to name him Plastering Apprentice of the Year. Now a qualified tradesperson, Stewart has commenced the second part of his career running his own business and with a determination to succeed, Stewart is fast becoming a sought-after tradesman on the Mornington Peninsula. Well done, Stewart. Jessica Ross Wall and Floor Tiling Apprentice of the Year 2015 Jessica moved herself 250 kilometres for her new career, taking a big step into a maledominated profession. That takes a great deal of confidence and courage, and she has flourished. With an artistic aptitude and a determination to be the best, Jessica acknowledges her boss as someone who has shaped her skill and fuelled her goal to be the best tiler in Bendigo. She s approaching that goal by being named the best tiling apprentice in the state. Well done, Jessica! Nathan Cartledge Stonemasonry Apprentice of the Year 2015 A true artisan upholding the traditional art of stonemasonry, Nathan is a credit not only to himself but also his employer and TAFE. Having worked in various locations around the country, Nathan has honed his skills and earned respect from both his employer and his fellow tradespeople. Nathan is building a strong foundation for himself in the industry. Congratulations, Nathan.

6 Sam Nunan Apprentice of the Year - Ballarat 2015 Sam s attitude to his trade, employer and trade school stood out above those of everyone else. His determination and willingness to go the extra mile stands Sam in good stead to succeed and grow within the building industry. A credit to his TAFE and his employer, Sam was the standout apprentice for the Ballarat Section. Congratulations, Sam, on your win. Luke Castagna Apprentice of the Year - Gippsland 2015 Luke has shown that not only is he a dedicated employee but that he has planned for his future extremely well. Having already completed a Certificate 4 in Building and Construction, Luke is well on his way to becoming a registered builder, showing the maturity and nous for the intricacies of what lies ahead. Master Builders congratulates him on winning the Gippsland Section Apprentice of the Year. Daniel Carrol Apprentice of the Year - Bendigo 2015 Honest, genuine, passionate and dedicated are words the judges used to describe Daniel. He is a credit to himself, his employer and RTO. Daniel s determination to succeed, his willingness to dedicate himself to every facet of building and an eagerness to learn have shown the judges that Daniel has a bright future ahead of him. Congratulations on winning the Bendigo Section Apprentice of the Year. Zac Porter Apprentice of the Year - Geelong 2015 Zac is an impressive apprentice who has succeeded at everything he has attempted, not only within his apprenticeship but also at football, overseas travel and the assistance he provides to others. Zac s commitment to his trade and his positive outlook and maturity are rarely seen in such a young apprentice. With an eye for detail and a perfectionist s habits, Zac is an outstanding apprentice and a worthy winner of the Geelong Section Apprentice of the Year.

7 Travis Maxfield Apprentice of the Year - North East 2015 Travis shows an intricate knowledge of his trade and can be seen as much a craftsman as he is a tradesman. With a passion for his trade, and respect and commitment to his employer, Travis believes that it is his responsibility to give back to his boss, but not just by remaining a loyal employee. Travis also said he feels obliged to take on an apprentice of his own, and pass on the skills that he has learnt so there will be a sustainable building industry. Zavier Hobbs Apprentice of the Year - North West 2015 An outstanding young apprentice, Zavier started with his boss while still at school, pursuing work experience that led to becoming an apprentice. Zavier has repaid his employer with hard work and diligence, which then gave him the opportunity to supervise a younger apprentice. Zavier s determination to learn all he can and to be the best he could be was rewarded with being named the North West Section Apprentice of the Year. Elton Brinkman Apprentice of the Year - Western 2015 Elton is a mature-aged apprentice who began with a successful career in the mining industry before deciding to change course. Beginning as an apprentice cabinetmaker, Elton found his true calling and asked to transfer to carpentry. His desire to succeed and be the best apprentice he could be, coupled with a fantastic work and training ethic, positioned Elton for the possibility of early release from his apprenticeship. Elton is a standout apprentice who proves that it is never too late to follow your dreams. Daniel Carroll Regional Apprentice of the Year 2015 The judges describe Daniel as honest, genuine, passionate and dedicated. He commits himself to every facet of the building process, and his eagerness showed them he has a bright future ahead of him. Daniel also encourages other young people in the trade to take pride in their work and show respect for their employers. We offer our congratulations to Daniel for being named Master Builders Regional Apprentice of the Year.

8 David Vastbinder Diploma Student of the Year 2015 David s work in the industry began as a mature-aged apprentice, taking classes at night school to meet his degree requirements. After 18 months of hard work, David is now a registered tradesman running his own small business in bathroom renovations. Happy with his career commitment, he is a strong advocate for pursuing a dream no matter what the challenges may be. Congratulations, David. Bryce Alexander Employer Nominated Apprentice of the Year 2015 It is especially difficult to select a winner for this category because all of the nominees have demonstrated a great deal of respect for, and trust in, their employers. But Bryce is also a quality carpenter, has the versatility and technical ability to use a broad variety of equipment and assists in the preparation of the work site. He s become a trusted member of his team and rewarded with greater responsibility. Congratulations, Bryce. Ashley Heffernan President s Award 2015 In selecting this year s winner of the President s Award, the judges could not miss Ashley. One judge commented, Ashley is the type of apprentice that any builder would like to have working for them. Ashley has a young family to support, travels great distances for work and demonstrates an outstanding ethical standard and commitment. He recognises the importance of giving back to the industry that has supported him, and looks forward to becoming registered and having apprentices of his own to whom he can impart the knowledge shared with him. Congratulations, Ashley. Nathan Cartledge Florence M Taylor Award 2015 With a deep interest in heritage work, Nathan has been fortunate to discover a trade that enables him to work outdoors and indulge his artistic interests. Showing great determination and commitment Nathan has made himself a true artisan, upholding the traditional craft of stonemasonry. Nathan is a credit not only to himself but also his employer and TAFE. Having worked in various locations around the country, Nathan has honed his skills and earned respect from both his employer and his fellow tradespeople. Nathan is building a strong foundation for himself in the stonemasonary trade.

9 Whytehall Shopfitters Pty Ltd Brian Fitzmaurice Award 2015 Whytehall Shopfitters Pty Ltd has been in operation since Over the past 25 years they have hired over 25 apprentices with an impressive completion rate over 85 per cent. Their commitment and dedication to training can be seen in the success of previous apprentices such as Darren Doggett, the Director of Clark and Doggett Building Concepts (a previous committee member of Master Builders), Salvatore De Feed, owner of Impact Shopfitting, and Geoff Hay from Select Shopfitting. Whytehall Shopfitters were the first shopfitting company in the country to take on a female apprentice. They currently have six full-time staff members who were previously apprentices. Each year for the last four years, the TAFEs have nominated two apprentices who were employed by Whytehall Shopfitters Pty Ltd. This year, their apprentice has won the Metropolitan Joinery Apprentice of the Year. Daniela Lopez Female Apprentice of the Year 2015 Daniela has no fear of challenges. She immigrated to Australia from her native Columbia, learned a new language and began her career in an industry with relatively few female role models. She tackled her carpentry apprenticeship head on and has never looked back. Daniela has her eye trained on a bright future within the building industry, and is eager to take the step of becoming a registered builder. Her own determination and commitment make Daniela a fantastic role model for young women and men alike, and an example of opportunities that lie before others like her, who come to Australia to embark on a new future. Well done, Daniela. Danielle Shedden Metropolitan Apprentice of the Year 2015 Danielle took a bold step in making a career change and was rewarded by falling in love with her new trade as a joiner. Being a woman in a male-dominated profession is no distraction for her, and her eye for detail and precision are nothing short of remarkable. She is enthusiastic and respectful of her employer and colleagues, and receives the same in return. She is an outstanding apprentice. Our congratulations to you, Danielle.

10 Danielle Shedden State Apprentice of the Year 2015 What do the judges look for in the Apprentice of the Year? Diligence, commitment, a passion for their trade, a spokesperson for future apprentices and the industry those are a few of the traits they look for. Danielle, however, offers those to an exceptional degree. Being a woman in a male-dominated profession is no distraction for her, and her eye for detail and precision are nothing short of remarkable. Danielle took a bold step in making her career change, and that was rewarded with passion for her new trade as a joiner. Danielle s trade school teacher, Ian Malcom, said, Danielle is one of the most outstanding apprentices I have seen at Chisholm TAFE, and her attitude to her schooling showed maturity beyond her years. Her eye for detail and desire to produce the best work possible are outstanding. Danielle happens to have achieved a black belt in martial arts, but it s her determination and commitment that have made her a valuable team member at Whytehall Shopfitters, assisting in all areas of the workplace. She is an ambassador and role model not only for women entering the building industry but also anyone considering a career change and especially young people considering a career in building and construction. Congratulations, Danielle.
