Australian Trade Training College apprentices named amongst the state’s best

Australian Trade Training College is proud to announce three of its apprentices have been selected as finalists to compete at the Queensland Training Awards.

Jackson McIvor, Chloe Chudleigh and Tayah Womal all took out awards in their regions’ respective Queensland Training Awards, earning them a place in the state finals.

Sunshine Coast man Jackson McIvor was awarded the Harry Hauenschild Apprentice of the Year at the North Coast Region finals. He completed his Certificate III in Electrotechnology through Australian Trade Training College who provided Jackson with online and practical training throughout his apprenticeship.

Jackson has been working as an electrician with Complex Electrical where his work ethic, broad knowledge base and his initiative saw him become the first apprentice to be seconded to its Mining Business Unit, “I chose to be an electrician as it allowed me to utilise my natural leadership abilities, allowed me to work with my hands as well as contribute to the state’s building and construction industry. I have learnt an immense amount about the industry, and more importantly myself throughout the course of my training,” Jackson said.

Chloe, from Tarong Power Station, took out the Bob Marshman Trainee of the Year award at the Darling Downs and South West Region finals. She completed her Certificate IV in Business at Stanwell Corporation through Australian Trade Training College, and was recognised for her work in transitioning the company into a paperless environment.

Chloe also has a passion for volunteering and promoting opportunities for women in the resource industry by taking leadership roles, such as with the Inclusion and Diversity Tarong Power Stations Working Group.

Tayah Womal was recognised as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the Central Queensland finals. She completed her Certificate III in Business through Australian Trade Training College and is passionate about promoting opportunities for women in the resource industry.

Australian Apprenticeship Support Network, Mas National (part of the IntoWork Group) also supported Chloe and Tayah through their traineeships.

Australian Trade Training College RTO Manager, Pauline Grant-Smith said the awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the apprentices and trainees, “Australian Trade Training College is an industry-driven training organisation with an objective to provide high quality training that meets the evolving skills needs for industry and employers.  We congratulate Chloe, Jackson and Tayah on their outstanding achievements and wish them the best of luck at the Queensland Training Awards. They are true ambassadors of Australian Trade Training College and serve as an inspiration to other students and apprentices,” she said.

The Australian Trade Training College is part of MRAEL (part of IntoWork Group) and for the past 16 years has been delivering Apprenticeship, Traineeship and VET in Schools training.
