Congratulations to MEGT apprentice Tim Stanway, for winning the Holmesglen Best 3rd-Year Electrical Apprentice award! This is a tremendous achievement for Tim who also won the Holmesglen Best 2nd-Year Electrical Apprentice award in 2016.
Tim is employed by MEGT and has been working for Host Employer Schneider Electric in Victoria since March 2015. Now in the 4th year of his electrical apprenticeship, he is currently focussing on sitting his electrical licencing exams to enable him to obtain his A-Grade Electrical Licence upon completion of his apprenticeship.
When accepting his award, Tim said he was very grateful to the training staff at Holmesglen for all their assistance during his Certificate III in Electrotechnology. Tim also thanked Schneider Electric and MEGT for the opportunities his apprenticeship has provided and the support he’s received from both organisations.
Mick Cullen, Senior Educator – Holmesglen, was not only impressed with Tim’s classwork but also the support he offers other apprentices.
“Tim won this award based on his academic achievements but also the leadership he shows within the class and his willingness to assist other apprentices within the group,” Mick said.
Tim says after winning these two awards, his employment prospects are greatly enhanced. He is hopeful that the awards will assist him to move into project management and supervisory roles within the electrical industry.
We wish Tim all the very best for his future, and we know he’ll be successful!
