A year after being named GOTAFE’s 2014 Most Outstanding 1st Year Apprentice for Hairdressing and Beauty, MEGT apprentice Eloise McCormick has been honoured a second time, winning the 2015 Most Outstanding 2nd Year Apprentice for the same category.

Eloise was awarded the title at the institution’s recent annual trade awards which recognised more than 50 pre-apprentices and apprentices for their exceptional achievements throughout the year.

She was thrilled that for the second year in a row her hard work and dedication had been rewarded.

“I’ve always had an interest in hairdressing and receiving this kind of recognition is definitely a confidence boost,” said Eloise.

Currently employed by Rubens of Beechworth Eco Hairdressing in North-East Victoria, Eloise is the first apprentice the company has taken on.

Employer Sarah Duffy couldn’t be prouder of her trainee’s achievements.

“Eloise is a great learner and a great listener, and this prize is certainly well-deserved. The acknowledgement is fantastic for her and shows that her hard work is paying off,” Sarah said.

With a year remaining of her Certificate III in Hairdressing, Eloise has already finished her schooling and is now busy completing her workplace competencies and working towards early sign-off.

Congratulations Eloise and Sarah!
