The awards night shone a spotlight on the North West’s up-and-coming trades professionals.

The celebration at the Mount Isa campus recognised the hard work and dedication of outstanding apprentices and trades students.

More than 60 nominations were submitted and nine award categories were announced at the ceremony, with the winners taking home 3D printed trophies and donated industry prizes.
