NECA is committed to showcasing and rewarding excellence. We run a series of industry awards ranging from the Trade Teachers Awards to the prestigious annual National Industry Excellence Awards held in November.
These awards provide our members with the only Australia-wide opportunity to showcase their best projects to their peers, industry, government and their local community. These awards are the ultimate recognition of being leaders in their field. Winners will have shown technical innovation, adherence to safety, delivery on on-time and on budget, and met many other challenging criteria.
The awards are designed to recognise and reward apprentices and their employers for outstanding performance and commitment to the industry. This is an excellent opportunity for employers who have dedicated time, effort and resources to the future of our industry to gain recognition from their peers and from the community. Nominations are open to fourth-year apprentices, or recently graduated apprentices, who have completed their TAFE or other RTO training and who have excelled in any area of their training. The awards acknowledge achievement in personal development, effort, academic attainment and workplace competency.
