Apprentices claim limelight

Apprentices claim the limelight in this issue, with three Registered Master Builders Carters 2006 Apprentice of the Year winners joining three BCITO specialist trades apprentices and 24 other apprentices from construction-related industry training organisations at an Outward Bound course at Anakiwa recently.

The 21-day course was designed to help develop young tradespeople into industry leaders for the future.
July 31 is also the closing date for the Registered Master Builders Carters 2007 Apprentice of the Year competition.

This year sees the introduction of a National Apprentice of the Year title, so it’s a great time to be an apprentice in New Zealand’s thriving construction industry!
