Australia’s most promising apprentices and trainees get the chance to hone their leadership skills
Australia’s top apprentices and trainees are about to embark on an intensive career and leadership program that will help equip them as future leaders.
The National Apprentice Employment Network’s ‘Today’s Skills: Tomorrow’s Leaders’ (TSTL) program brings together 21 outstanding apprentices and trainees, selected from across Australia.
It comprises 19 apprentices and trainees selected by group training organisations, and two finalists from the 2021 Australian Training Awards. (List of participants attached).
All the participants are regarded as emerging leaders in their fields. They are engaged in industries including, business, electrical, engineering, community services, automotive, education, maritime, construction and logistics.
The week-long intensive residential program will run from 15-20 May in Canberra and will be officially launched by National Apprentice Employment Network (NAEN) Patron, the Governor-General of Australia, His Excellency, General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd).
The TSTL program commenced in 2004 and almost 250 apprentices and trainees have participated.
NAEN Chief Executive Officer Dianne Dayhew said the program provides a unique opportunity for skilled individuals to extend their leadership capabilities.
“The group has been selected from across Australia for their exceptional talent and dedication, and they now have the chance to take these abilities to the next level.
“I would like to congratulate all those who have been selected for this program because I am very confident that we will be hearing much more about their success in years to come.”
