Judging

Judging is carried out by a panel of judges comprising of industry representatives. They will review your submission alongside all other applicants. Once finalists have been selected, HIA will contact each successful apprentice to arrange a face-to-face interview.

Here is an example of the questions the judges may ask:

  • What are your thoughts on the changes within the building industry?
  • Tell me about your experience of safety on site.
  • Thinking about your host, how would they describe their ideal apprentice? What positive qualities do you think they are looking for in an apprentice?
  • What words of advice would you give to a person who is thinking about starting an apprenticeship in the building industry?

What are we looking for?

Judges consider attitude to work, maturity, personal development and overall progress throughout the Apprenticeship. They also consider:

  • Work ethic
  • Communication skills and personal presentation
  • Ability to follow instructions
  • Trade and industry knowledge
  • Understanding of Work Health & Safety
  • Relationship with fellow workers, host and clients
  • Academic results and awards
