ATEL's Award Winning Apprentices and Trainees
It’s the awards season and ATEL has been busy nominating some of our wonderful apprentices and trainees. Throughout our 30+ year history, we have had many apprentices and trainees who have excelled. And this year is no different; in the past two months, we have had four very deserving young people up for awards. Their dedication is a credit to their host companies and the entire ATEL team.
Aleisha McDonalds has faced many challenges in her young life. Instead of being defeated, she decided early on to be a positive role model to her younger siblings. She focused on her education and has completed a Certificate III in Children Services, a Certificate III in Community Services and is currently working on a Certificate III in Business (Medical) Administration. She aims to complete early and regularly finishes modules ahead of schedule. Because of her dedication, professionalism and commitment to her career, she won many awards such as the Diligence Award, Student of the Year, Services Award and Trainee of the Year at the Albury Wodonga Red Carpet Youth Awards. She was also a finalist for Trainee of the Year in the 2016 AEN Awards/GTA Vic Awards.
Daniel Lumby is currently working on his Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology. Throughout school, Daniel developed his leadership skills by getting involved in as many activities he could without negatively affecting his education. His work ethic developed early when he became a Red Rooster employee whilst attending school. His dedication and focus will see him complete his Certificate six months early, then he is off to RMIT Melbourne University to study a Bachelor of Business (Information Systems). His outstanding achievements continue to be recognised by all around him. He was nominated for Trainee of the Year at the Red Carpet Awards in Albury and Trainee of the Year for the 2016 AEN Awards/GTA Vic Awards.
Jayden Carpenter relocated to Wodonga from a remote NSW town in order to find employment. Leaving his family and friends was hard, but he was determined to find work, so much so that he set about knocking on doors to find an apprenticeship. His current host employer, Joe the Ceramic Tiler, didn’t have a position for Jayden but was struck by his level of maturity and strong work ethic and decided to employ him. Jayden has continuously proven that he was a good bet and is happy to get up at 5:00 a.m. for the early starts in order to be alert for the jobs at hand. He never complains and is willing and eager to take on any task.
Hannah Daniel was nominated and chosen as a finalist for Trainee of the Year for the 2016 NSW & ACT GTA Awards. Hannah completed her Certificate IV in Library, Information and Cultural Services, while working at the Greater Hume Shire across three small NSW rural communities. During her traineeship, she was a driving force in planning community events and tendering for various government grants. Through Hannah’s dedication and professionalism, she has secured a full-time permanent position with the Greater Hume Shire where she continues to develop fun and engaging activities for all members of the community.
