Apprentice Awards

NECA has led the industry's apprentice awards for over three decades, and we will continue to work to achieve an ever-increasing level of awareness and respect for electrical and communications apprentices and their employers.

NECA recognises the essential role that our apprentices play in the future of our industry.  The Apprentice Awards showcase the outstanding contribution an apprentice can make to both the projects they work on and to their employer's or host's business.

The awards also acknowledge achievement in personal development, effort, academic attainment and workplace competency.

Applicants must be in their fourth year of TAFE or RTO or recently completed their apprenticeship (within 12 months from the completion date). During their apprenticeship, they must have been employed by a NECA member or a NECA group training apprentice company.

Applicants may only enter one category and must not have been previously nominated.
Judging and Criteria

Applicants will initially be assessed at a state level, with finalists being invited to an interview with a judging panel. State winners and any placegetters will be invited to collect their award at a state awards function, along with their employers who will also receive a certificate. State winners from each category will then be invited to submit a project to be judged for the NECA National Apprentice Awards.
