Local Talent Wins Big


Posted on 03/07/17 in

Skill-developer and business-solutions heavy weight, Apprenticeship Support Australia (ASA), cleaned up at the Central Coast Training awards last Wednesday night. ASA received not only the most winners for the region, but also, the most nominations.

ASA’s noteworthy talent pool took home a total of twelve awards, with three landing in the Major Winners category; Jai Sampson, Rachel Gray and Stevie Aston.

Mr Sampson won Apprentice of the Year Award and will now go onto represent the Central Coast in the NSW Training Awards later this year. Mr Sampson is completing a Certificate III in Carpentry.

Mr Aston won the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year Award in his certificate III in Allied Health Assistance; and Ms Gray took home School Based Apprentice/ Trainee of the Year Award.

“We are so proud of all our winners and nominees” says Jeffrey Cooke, ASA’s Regional Manager for the Hunter & North Coast.

“While we are there to support our apprentices and trainees—every step of the way—the awards and nominations can only be attributed to them. They have put in the hard-yards and are the people endeavouring to innovate the industries they work in.

“The awards night is of utmost importance, we recognise and give due-credit to the industry leaders of tomorrow,” explains Mr Cooke.

ASA is both contracted by the Australian Government and backed by NSW Business Chamber, the state’s peak business organisation. ASA has over 60 years of collective experience within the apprenticeship support field and delivers unprecedented assistance and training to both employers and apprentices across the Central Coast and the country.

“In this massive moment of success, we have to also acknowledge the great work of Central Coast Group Training. They employ and place our apprentices with quality, local employers and are an instrumental part to the success of our Central Coast apprentices and trainees,” shares Mr Cooke.
