Helene to contest state women’s trade award
Jerilderie’s Helene Mortlock (pictured) will this week contest the NSW Industry Excellence Awards’ Woman in a Non Traditional Trade Award category.
Mrs Mortlock was entered as a finalist after competing in the Apprentice of the Year at the Riverina/Murray Region awards in Wagga Wagga in June.
The apprentice carpenter is employed by Paul Ryan Building Contractors.
She is also studying a TAFE NSW Certificate III in Carpentry and Certificate IV in Construction.
TAFE NSW students feature among the finalists in six of the seven individual categories at the awards event, to be held at Sydney Town Hall on Thursday.
The prestigious awards, conducted by the NSW Department of Industry, recognise the many vocational education and training (VET) students, teachers, providers and employers working across the sector.
