In the lead up to the Australian Training Awards on 17 November, MEGT is celebrating the achievements of all our employers, apprentices and trainees who have won regional-level awards and who will now compete at state-level over the coming months.


Today we celebrate the winner of the Medium Employer of the Year Award for North Queensland:

Cowboys Leagues Club, Townsville

Cowboys Leagues Club (CLC) is passionate about giving their staff the best opportunity to extend their careers in hospitality and see apprenticeships and traineeships as the best way to make this happen.


As part of their commitment to training and development, CLC appointed Emma Brakels in 2015 – a dedicated Training and Development Coordinator who oversees the progression of CLC’s trainees and apprentices.

Emma is thrilled that CLC’s training program has contributed to this award, and knows the rest of the CLC team is too.


“All successful businesses are built on successful training programs and if it wasn’t for the programs we have in place, we wouldn’t be experiencing the success we are.

It is a great feeling for the team knowing that all team members have had a part in the training and in turn the success we are having,” she said.

L – R: CLC staff – Jennifer Unwin, Emma Brakels, Jade Astorquia and Tina Schutz.

The company will now go on to compete in the Queensland State Training Awards on 9 September, with the aim to win at state-level and progress to the national awards in November.

Congratulations to the CLC team and all the best at the state awards!
