Praise Continues for Haden Apprenticeship Programme


An apprenticeship programme dedicated to developing excellence in a new generation of HVAC&R technicians has picked up another two awards. Haden’s Cairns branch was honoured at the recent Skill360 Australia Annual Awards 2009 winning the Host Employer Award. This is the second major apprenticeship programme award Haden has been awarded in the past 12 months, receiving the Coolworld Award for Best Apprenticeship Programme last year.

“Investing in our apprentices is the only way we can guarantee that we will have a stable of professional, experienced tradespeople in years to come. It also allows us to give back to the community that we work in by providing meaningful employment opportunities to local and regional youth,” explained Martyn Wittebol, North Queensland Regional Manager. “In times like these, it is more important than ever that we ensure we are in a position to meet the demand when the economy picks up again with a reliable workforce,” Martyn continued.

Congratulations also go to Darren Mackedie, a 4th year apprentice with Haden’s Cairns branch who was selected from a field of 23 candidates as the Engineering Apprentice of the year. Haden apprentices Nick Webber, Mark Bender and Gary Blackman were also nominated for their dedication to excellence and commitment to their apprenticeship and studies.
