Brisbane parks staffer named top apprentice

Brisbane City Council parks team member, Harry Roberts, has been named the Harry Hauenschild Apprentice of the Year at the 63rd Queensland Training Awards regional finals.

Mr Roberts completed his Certificate III in Arboriculture as part of the Council team caring for trees in the city’s streets and parks.

The Awards regional finals showcase the great work in vocational education and training (VET) across the state, with categories for apprentices, trainees, vocational students, teachers and trainers, community training projects and employers.

Supported by the Queensland Government, the awards saw almost 750 statewide nominations this year, with the regional finalists representing the excellence, hard work, and dedication evident in Queensland’s high-performing training system.

“The Miles Labor Government is committed to doing what matters for our great state which means giving every Queenslander the opportunity to access quality training that can get them a good job with better pay,” said Minister for Training and Skills Development, Lance McCallum.

“The Queensland Training Awards are the pinnacle of that promise, providing a platform to highlight the top performers in training and demonstrate the transformative power of skills.”
