ABN Group’s 2021 ABN Training Apprentice Awards celebrated their very best apprentices who will graduate with building trade qualifications over the next few years.
The annual awards celebrate ABN Group’s top performing building apprentices. Big names in industry were in attendance including ABN Group Managing Director, Dale Alcock.
ABN Group is Australia’s largest private trainer of building apprentices, with more than 1000 graduated through its program since 2004.
Dale Alcock, ABN Group Managing Director, has been a long-time advocate for training quality building apprentices, and says that ABN Group leads by example in this regard.
“The building industry relies on quality tradespeople to ensure that we build quality West Australian homes,” Mr Alcock says.
“ABN Group has made it a priority to train the next generation to become gold-class tradespeople and it is the reason why we build the best homes for our customers.
“We maintain a relationship with our apprentices, throughout their training, when they are fully qualified with a team and, beyond that, with many joining our building companies.”
Mr Alcock said that more private businesses should take on building apprentices and do their part in securing a professional and qualified future workforce.
“Providing robust training and supporting our apprentices to achieve is how our industry will survive,” he said.
“It’s also why we are able to say that we only use WA’s top tradespeople to build homes for our customers.
“A huge congratulations goes out to all our apprentices for their hard work and commitment this year and well done to all the award-winners for 2021.”
