Top Trade Students Awarded

 

 

 Some of Portland’s best trade apprentices were recognised for their tremendous dedication at the South West TAFE Awards ceremony earlier this month.More than 250 people attended the awards night on October 4 to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of students across automotive, carpentry, cabinet making, engineering, plumbing and electrical trades.

 

Seven apprentices from Portland, Heywood, Cashmore and Narrawong were among the 54 winners, ranging from first year to fourth year awards, as well as several commemorative awards.Keppel Prince apprentice Brad Jasper, who was awarded the Best First Year Apprentice in Certificate III in Engineering (Mechanical Trade), said his award came as a surprise."I was pretty shocked when I found out, but I was also quite happy too," Mr Jasper said."It was great to know all of my hard work this year has paid off."Mr Jasper said his first year at Keppel Prince has been fantastic."I love working at Keppel; it’s a really good place to work."We do a wide range of jobs – one day we might be working on a breakdown, the next day on the lathe, and then we’re off to the top shop (smelter)."There’s a fair bit of variety."

 

Mr Jasper was one of two award winners from the engineering firm, with boilermaker Nicholas Scott the runner-up Best Third Year Apprentice in Certificate III in Engineering (Fabrication Trade).Adult Apprentice Luke Inman was the recipient of the Shane Riordon Memorial Award, which goes to the Automotive Apprentice of the Year who’s in their third year of study."I was pretty stoked when I found out."
