2017 Skillinvest Apprenticeship and Traineeship Awards

Joining forces to support apprenticeships and traineeships

The 2017 Skillinvest Regional Apprenticeship and Traineeship Awards were held on Friday 6 October 2017 in Longerenong (near Horsham VIC) and MAS National was well represented.

MAS partner with Skillinvest in this region and our local Business Consultant Hamish Gawith and Regional Team Leader Don Moore attended the event to show our support. Don was even lucky enough to present two awards for outstanding achievement.

A great night

The official presentations and speeches were kept to 1 hour and were followed by a huge supper in true country style! It was great to be a part of the night and to see everyone so proudly celebrating their success!

We would also like to say a massive congratulations to the organisers. As short as the event was, they made sure they took time to ensure that each apprentice and every introduction contained a personal element about that apprentice. So efficient yet not rushed!

Everyone dressed to impress on the night and looked fantastic!
