Kacie’s our top tradie

By Patrick Nelson

Welding and Metal Fabricator Kacie Anderson has won the Advanced Training International Overall Trade Apprentice prize at the School of Trades presentation event in Darwin.

Head of School Trades Roy Brandner said Ms Anderson, a third-year apprentice, was an outstanding choice, having excelled academically and as a practitioner of her craft.

“I congratulate Ms Anderson on this success, and indeed extend my applause to all 20 winners on their outstanding achievements,” Mr Brandner said.

He said the awards, which were founded on academic achievement, inclusiveness and cultural diversity, showcased the diversity, talent and strength of students in the School of Trades.

“Our winners are the shining lights among more than 1300 apprentices to whom we delivered training last year,” Mr Brandner said.

He thanked Advanced Training International for its scholarship donation, which will fund a range of annual student excellence awards in the fields of electro-technology, automotive and civil, metal trades and engineering and building technology.

“I thank our staff, sponsors and the employers of our apprentices for their support in the award evening, and for helping us to develop a high-quality and skilful workforce in the Territory.”
