Frank Messina - Nominated by ABN Group for Best 1st Year Apprentice


Frank Messina (Class of 2017) was awarded Runner Up Best 1st Year Apprentice 2018 at the ABN Training Apprenticeship Awards at Crown Ballroom on Friday 10 Aug 2018.  Congratulations Frank we are all very proud of you !

My Workplace Learning journey started in Year 11 when I completed two weeks of work experience in Concreting. Having been immersed in this trade from a young age, due to my family already being established within the concrete industry, I quickly realised I wanted to pursue this as a career.

 After utilising my contacts and networking across the industry, I was offered a place to complete my second round of Workplace Learning with a concrete company called Concretus. They operate under the ABN Group and there was the possibility of an Apprenticeship being offered, so I took every opportunity to show that I was committed to being a solid and reliable worker. My hard work paid off when late in Year 12 I was offered a two year Apprenticeship in Concreting.

I have now been working as an Apprentice since the beginning of January 2018. I have met so many new people who have helped me develop my skills and knowledge surrounding the job. Because of this I enjoy going to work every morning and come home with lots of stories.
At the beginning of March I was notified that I had been nominated by the ABN Group for the Best First Year Concrete Apprentice and for Apprentice of the Year, which is presented by the HIA (Housing Industry Australia). I have been told the main reasons surrounding my nomination for this award, were due to my extensive workplace place learning hours and consistent work ethic throughout the beginning of my Apprenticeship.

Workplace learning has provided me with the opportunity to get started in my chosen career, it is certainly a worthwhile experience and I encourage all students to have a go !
