Kiara bricklayer takes out award for most-improved apprentice

A KIARA bricklayer won a most-improved apprentice award at a statewide construction and building awards ceremony earlier this month.

Luke Palfreyman (18), a second-year bricklaying apprentice, was recognised for his commitment and approach to learning at the annual ABN Training Apprentice Awards.

The former Morley Senior High School student said he worked hard to improve his skills and kept the right attitude at work.

“Early on I knew that I wanted to become a bricklayer, which is why I am really thankful to learn my trade from the best in the building industry with the ABN Group and my host trainer,” he said.

“Having come straight out of school into my apprenticeship, these last two years have been really challenging but hugely rewarding and I cannot wait to get out there building homes when I am fully qualified.”

ABN Group managing director Dale Alcock said their training program developed competent tradespeople with strong leadership and safety skills.

“We will continue to work with WA’s next generation of apprentices to help them become the best-of-the-best in their trade,” he said.
