This award is open to all apprentices of HIA members and apprentices can be nominated by their host, by HIA Apprentices or they can nominate themselves.

 

How do I enter?

It's easy to enter. Simply complete the online form which includes questions on worksite performance, ethics and skill for both the apprentice and the apprentice's host. The following items also need to be uploaded as part of your submission:

  • Copy of your qualification certificate (if completed) OR a statement of attainment for all units completed to date
  • Copy of the most recent academic records or statement from training provider
  • Copy of any additional awards, prizes or achievements
  • Three high resolution images of the apprentice taken on-site performing day to day work activities. The apprentice needs to be facing the camera for promotional purposes in at least one image.

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
