Apprentice students to be honoured
Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE Benalla and Wangaratta campuses will hold their annual Trade Awards Gala Dinner tonight.
The awards will recognise the achievements of apprentice students at an event attended by their employers, business owners and guests.
Awards are presented to apprentices in the first, second, third or fourth years from automotive, building and construction, electrical, engineering, hair and beauty, hospitality, baking and plumbing learning areas.
This year, Paul de Gelder will be the special guest speaker. Paul will talk to guests about his life journey, which led him to a career as a navy diver, how he survived a shark attack in Sydney Harbour where he lost an arm and a leg, and how he now travels the world as a motivational speaker.
The awards presentation culminates with the announcement of the Apprentice of the Year for the Benalla and Wangaratta campuses.
