A builder has been named as North Coast’s top apprentice of the year after turning his life around and focussing on his chosen career.

Minister for Training and Skills Development Shannon Fentiman said Samuel Liddle from Nambour took home the title of Harry Hauenschild Apprentice of the Year as one of the 11 winners at the regional final of the 58th Queensland Training Awards.

“Samuel describes his apprenticeship as the lifeline he needed to turn his life around,” Ms Fentiman said.

“Through his training and employment with Gateway Constructions he has found a passion for his trade, as well as skills and experience that he can use to give back to his community.

“Samuel completed his Certificate III in Carpentry in 2019 and is working towards obtaining his builder’s license.

“Samuel will now join the winners from six other regional Queensland Training Awards to become finalists in the state Queensland Training Awards with winners announced in September.

“All of our high calibre regional winners represent a wide range of industries and occupations, from dental, electricians, metal fabrication specialists and hairdressing salons, to disability support organisations and big businesses.

“Being selected as a regional winner recognises their outstanding contribution to the state’s growth and economy and they should be proud of their achievements so far.

“The Palaszczuk Government is committed to supporting training and skills development for all Queenslanders.”

The Queensland Training Awards highlights the excellence in the state’s training sector and supports the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to skilling Queenslanders, especially for the high-demand industries of the future.
