Entries for Apprentice of the Year 2019

The SCNZ Apprentice of the Year celebrates excellence amongst apprentice fabricators and casts a spotlight on careers in the structural steel industry. The Award acknowledges people whose skills, drive, and willingness to learn and work hard has helped them to achieve outstanding outcomes; it recognises well-rounded apprentices who demonstrate not only talent in steel fabrication, but display traits important to the industry – commitment, innovation and agility.

Congratulations to Hayden Grace from John Jones Steel, for winning  SCNZ Apprentice of the Year 2019!

Thank you to our Apprentice of the Year sponsor, Weldwell, for their continued support of this award.

“A fantastic all-rounder who exhibited massive growth throughout his apprenticeship.  Extremely personable (despite saying he was shy at school) and knows his trade very well.  He has ambition to move into a leadership role in the future and he’ll succeed in whatever he puts his hand to.”
