MTA Apprentice of the Year nominations open for 2011 award

Issue 28 – June 2011

The Motor Trade Association (MTA) is encouraging automotive businesses from all sectors of the industry to put forward their top apprentices. The long running MTA Apprentice of the Year Award aims to reward the skills of talented apprentices and recognise employers who are investing in the future of the automotive industry.

MTA General Manager Advocacy and Training, Dougal Morrison, says the competition not only recognises the best in the automotive industry, but it's a great opportunity for apprentices to showcase their talents and fast track their skills and career development. 'The standard of entries just gets better and better each year,' says Morrison. 'Our MTA members do a great job training their apprentices, and as a result there is a lot of talent out there. It's also pleasing to see so many young apprentices being given a chance to further opportunities such as overseas training and employment.'

Entries close 31 July 2011. Read the full media release ( or nominate an apprentice here ( For more information contact Ana Zandi, MTA Web and Communications Manager, on 04 381 8839.
