ATNZ Apprentice of the Year 2020

ATNZ Apprentice of the Year 2020

Congratulations to the first female finalist for ATNZ Apprentice of the Year 2020.

Our apprentice Erin Tong may not have taken out the Apprentice of the Year award this year but being the first female finalist in the organisations history is impressive and reason to celebrate!

This year, ATNZ whittled the pile of Apprentice of the Year applicants down to a top four with Lachlan Hamilton-Ralph, a general engineering apprentice at Obtuse Limited being named the Apprentice Training New Zealand (ATNZ) Apprentice of the Year 2020.

Erin came to We Can for work experience while completing the EIT NZ Certificate in Engineering Trades and stood out even then, becoming the proud recipient of the scholarship for the top student in her course that year.

Rickie confirmed “It was no surprise that we offered Erin an apprenticeship once she finished her certificate and we are proud to see her set a great example to all women out there that with the right attitude and willingness to learn, you can do anything.”
