More than one hundred industry leaders and apprentices gathered in Adelaide recently to attend the Santos 2013 Apprentice of the Year Awards at the Santos Centre.

The awards ceremony is held annually to showcase a group of talented young achievers and acknowledge the importance of the apprenticeship program at Santos.

Three major awards were on offer, with Guy Cave working on the Santos GLNG project at Roma and Fairview receiving the Santos Apprentice of the Year Award for 2013. This award is presented to the apprentice who has achieved excellence in overall work competence, high standards of personal and workplace safety, a commitment to ongoing self-improvement, and initiative and motivation.

It was the first time this award was won by a Queenslander, and the success for the state didn’t finish there. Fairview-based apprentice Dane Albeck was selected for the Team Member Award for 2013. Both Guy and Dave are completing a Certificate III in electrical instrumentation. The third award – Most Outstanding Scholar – went to South Australian apprentice Jarryd Eades.
“We are very proud of the achievements of all of our apprentices, but the efforts of Guy and Dane are very special and these Awards recognise this,” said Mr Clint Weber, Chief Executive Officer of their employer Golden West Apprenticeships.

“This is a great win for the GoldenWest apprentices and is recognition for their hard work and commitment to their trade,” Mr Weber said. “On behalf of the Golden West Board I would like to pass on their congratulations for a job well done. The pressure is on now for them to keep up the good work,” he said.

“These Awards are just an indication of what can be achieved through an apprenticeship. Really, the sky is the limit and I encourage anyone out there who is interested in a trade or taking on an aspiring tradie to contact us. There are over 700 apprenticeships and traineeships available and I’m sure there is something to suit the goals of everyone in the vast area we operate in,” Mr Weber said.

“I would also like to recognise and acknowledge the commitment shown by Santos in this area,” Mr Weber continued. “They take the employment and training of apprentices within their organisation very seriously and these Awards and the process leading up to them reinforces that commitment.”

“In the future I hope Golden West Apprenticeships can bring more Santos Awards to Queensland,” Mr Weber said.
