Augusta Margaret River Times - - NEWS - Cal­lum Hunter

Jared Mag­ill from BES Elec­tri­cal So­lu­tions in Brunswick was named the 2018 Ap­pren­tice of the Year at the ap­pren­tice and trainee­ship com­pany awards last Fri­day.

The awards, hosted at the Qual­ity Ho­tel Light­house, recog­nised the achieve­ments of ap­pren­tices and trainees, as well as the val­ued con­tri­bu­tion of host em­ploy­ers.

The Bin­ningup man met all the win­ning cri­te­ria by means of his per­sonal, work and trade skills, ex­tra ex­ter­nal work ex­pe­ri­ence, com­pe­tency in his work, aca­demic achieve­ments and host feed­back.

“I was pretty stoked to win and it was nice to be recog­nised for ev­ery­thing I have done over the last four years,” Mr Mag­ill said.

“I think it was my ded­i­ca­tion, prompt­ness and want­ing to learn that got me across the line. I was able to do things by my­self from early on in my ap­pren­tice­ship with a keen eye for de­tail.”

BES Elec­tri­cal So­lu­tions di­rec­tor Michael Sheedy said he was proud of his for­mer ap­pren­tice.

“It means BES Elec­tri­cal So­lu­tions is pro­vid­ing qual­ity train­ing and I want to con­grat­u­late Jared on his award,” he said.

Mr Mag­ill was also named fourth-year ap­pren­tice of the year, along­side first-year win­ner Max Met­calf, se­cond-year win­ner Kiara Bow­ers and third-year win­ner Luke Carr.
