Top Building Apprentices Announced!
The top apprentices from each region have been announced for the 2023 Registered Master Builders CARTERS Apprentice of the Year.
Now in its 20th year, the Apprentice of the Year competition recognises excellence among carpentry apprentices and raises awareness of career opportunities in the building and construction industry. The competition tests our future sector leaders' project management, business, presentation, and practical skills.
For the regional competition, each apprentice had to submit details of a building project they had worked on as well as take part in a two-hour practical challenge where they were tasked with building a step stool. The top 10 participants from each region then progressed to the interview stage with a judging panel and an onsite visit to discuss their submitted building project in detail.
The eight top apprentices will now go on to compete in the national competition in November. This will include a 45-minute interview with the national judging panel and an additional six-hour practical skills test, followed by the National Awards Dinner where the national winner will be announced.
Congratulations to all of our regional winners!
