Ampcontrol Apprentice Named as Finalist for 2020 NSW Apprentice of the Year

Since our beginnings in 1968, we’ve been proud to offer tradespeople their start in the manufacturing industry, so it comes as no surprise that Ampcontrol’s Josh French is in the running for Apprentice Of The Year – Electrotechnology Certificate III at this year’s NSW Training Awards (Hunter Region).

Selected finalists in the NSW Apprentice of the Year Award are those who have been outstanding in all aspects of their training and demonstrate the relevance of life-long learning. Joining the Ampcontrol team as an Electrical Apprentice in 2016, Josh has been recongised for the accolade due to his strong work ethic, attitude, and commitment to personal growth. Since completing his apprenticeship in 2019, Josh has joined our Electrical Testing Team in Newcastle, NSW.

In 2020, the NSW Training Awards celebrate and honour 65 years of outstanding achievements in vocational education and training for apprentices, trainees, and students as well as teachers, training providers, and employers. Reaching the Finals during the COVID-19 pandemic is an additional achievement for all Finalists who have had to adapt to the new virtual application and interview process.

We’re wishing Josh the best of luck when the Training Services NSW winners are announced via an online awards ceremony on 22 June, 2020.

Each year Ampcontrol offers a range of apprenticeships in the areas of engineering, technology, mechanical, and manufacturing. In 2019, a record-breaking 833 applications were received of which 14 new apprentices were welcomed into the business across NSW and QLD. Intakes for our 2020 Apprentice Program will commence later in the year. If you would like to learn more about the Ampcontrol Apprentice Program head to our careers page.
