Hard work earn Jared title of apprentice of the year
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.
Elizabeth Gaffney from St John of God Hospital Bunbury was named trainee of the year, Brendan May won Skills Centre apprentice of the year and Mainline Plumbing was named host employer of the year.
