3rd year refrigeration apprentice wins Construction Skills Queensland Apprentice of the Year 2012
Jack Rossington, a 3rd year refrigeration apprentice employed by MIGAS Apprentices & Trainees and hosted to Haden Engineering in Bundaberg, was awarded the Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) Construction Apprentice of the Year, sponsored by Abigroup, at an Awards Night on Friday 9th November.
21 year old Rossington has taken out a number of awards recently, including SkillsTech QLD 2nd Year Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Apprentice of the Year 2011, MIGAS Refrigeration Apprentice of the Year 2011, and MIGAS Overall QLD Apprentice of the Year 2011. He was also selected as one of only two Queensland representatives at the weeklong 2012 Today’s Skills Tomorrow’s Leaders Program, sponsored by Group Training Australia in Canberra.
With a family history in the construction Industry, Rossington was forever tinkering in the home shed and obtained many awards throughout his senior schooling in Manual Arts.
Rossington’s MIGAS HR Development Officer, Wendy Cavanagh, says, “He contacted MIGAS [when he decided he wanted to pursue a trade career], impressed us to no end and started his apprenticeship within two weeks of the initial meeting”.
“From day one, with his passion to know everything and anything about the trade, Jack has impressed his fellow workers and supervisors. His enthusiasm has not changed since becoming an apprentice and is always asking for more challenging duties to undertake,” Cavanagh says.
“It is in our company mission to create a sustainable Industry future by assisting young people at being employed into apprenticeships and traineeships,” says MIGAS CEO, David Brown.
“Along with personal and professional development, we like to offer as much encouragement and support as possible along the way. MIGAS has supported Jack through all of his nominations and awards. We ensure the best possible outcomes for our apprentices, trainees and school-based trainees, and that means recognition of hard work. MIGAS nominate our excelling apprentices and trainees into many prestigious awards to celebrate their dedication to Australian Industry.”
