Over 1,500 apprentices train with MTA Institute throughout Queensland. This makes winning the prestigious title of MTA Institute Apprentice of the Month an incredible achievement and something all apprentices can work towards.
So how do you win? MTA Institute trainers are constantly monitoring students for those that are high achievers, enthusiastic in their learning and have a great attitude. All students that are exceeding expectations in their learning are nominated by their trainers for the Apprentice of the Month and these students will go into the selection process.
Apprentices can also nominate themselves as can their employee. Simply fill in an online form on the MTA Institute website and be in the running for that particular month. Please note the MTA Institute undergoes a stringent internal process regarding selection of the MTA Institute Apprentice of the Month, taking into account information from a range of sources. Once the decision has been finalised, no further discussion will be entered into once the decision has been made.
If selected as the Apprentice of the Month the student will receive an official certificate along with a gift voucher and a double pass to the Gold Coast 600. But along with this, the student will automatically go in the running to win the MTA Institute Apprentice of the Year which is announced at the MTA Queensland’s annual President’s Ball; a signature event for Queensland’s Automotive Industry.
One of the main highlights at the President’s Ball is the reveal of the Apprentice of the Year. All Apprentices of the Month receive two complimentary tickets to the Ball along with a return flight, if needed, and are encouraged to attend to celebrate their fantastic achievement.
In addition to the title, the Apprentice of the Year wins a variety of fantastic prizes including an opportunity to work with Triple Eight Race Engineering in the pits.
The MTA Institute trainers, employers (who use the MTA Institute for training their apprentices) or MTA Institute apprentices themselves, may nominate for the MTA Institute Apprentice of the Month.
Nominations may be made more than once, where an apprentice nominee misses out on being selected for a previous month.
Nominations are made via an online nomination form here.
