Apprentice of the Year

The MTA Queensland Apprentice of the Year Award is an incredibly prestigious title and is awarded to a MTA Institute apprentice who has gone above and beyond in their training and is passionate about the automotive industry.

To be eligible, the student must be currently completing, or have recently completed a nationally accredited automotive apprenticeship through MTA Institute.

The Apprentice of the Year finalist are automatically selected from the MTA Institute Apprentice of the Month winners from September to August the following year. Learn more about the Apprentice of the Month, and how to nominate HERE

These 12 apprentices (one for each month) will be interviewed as part of the Apprentice of the Year judging process and the winner is usually announced at the Industry Awards Gala held each year in Brisbane. Obviously due the disruption caused by COVID-19, the MTA Industry Awards Gala isn’t proceeding for 2020 but the good news is that we will be continuing with the Apprentice of the Year celebration for 2020 and will be making the announcement via a special Zoom event on Friday 16th October 2020. More details will be released closer to the event.
