ATIVO Apprentice of the Year Award
ATIVO recognises that today’s apprentices and trainees are one of Australia’s most valuable resources. By providing Australian apprenticeships and traineeships for ATIVO is demonstrating a firm commitment to the future of Australia’s economy.
In December 2009 ATIVO Maintenance & Project Services launched the “ATIVO Apprentice of the Year” Award to recognise the achievements of the ATIVO and Pacific Relines apprentices.
ATIVO recognises how important it is to formally acknowledge the success of our apprentices who have excelled in their trade in the past year. Applicants are judged on their learning and work performance, as well as their attitude to safety, extra-curricular activities and contribution to the community.
The successful apprentice will receive a perpetual trophy, an annual trophy, and a significant cash prize ($1,000). The Award will be presented at the inaugural Apprentice of the Year function in early 2010.
Applications for ATIVO Apprentice of the Year 2011 are not yet open, dates will be annouced soon . The Apprentice of the Year will be announced on review from Apprentice Committee.
Apprenticeships are a way of combining training and employment - they combine practical work with structured training which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
ATIVO understands that not everyone is the same, and choosing a career or a new career direction that is exciting, satisfying and rewarding is different for everybody.
An ATIVO Trades Apprenticeship may be just for you.
What is an ATIVO Apprenticeship?
An ATIVO Apprenticeship is an employment based training arrangement where there is an opportunity to combine practical experience in the workplace with structured training.
Apprenticeship training can be undertaken on-the-job, off-the-job or as a combination of both. The pattern of training is negotiated with ATIVO’s clients in consultation with ATIVO’s local training provider.
Apprenticeships offer a real advantage by providing a nationally recognised qualification and skills, which provide the basis for further education and training.
How to Qualify
Most apprenticeships and traineeships require basic numeracy and literacy skills together with an interest or flair for a particular industry.
Depending on the type of Apprenticeship, some additional criteria may need to be satisfied, eg: some previous training, higher level of education.
