“It’s a great example of the LIA’s commitment to supporting and encouraging our industry’s trainees, and it was a delight to see a group of enthusiastic and capable people undertaking all vocational training for our industry and others,” said Robyn Frampton, representing the LIA Victoria at the event.
The trades awards ceremony, held at the institute’s Victorian Tunneling Center at Chadstone in Victoria, has been a fixture on the apprenticeship calendar, celebrating the achievements of Holmesglen’s students, staff and industry.
Frampton said the LIA has a longstanding relationship with Holmesglen, in line with its commitment to supporting education and training, and encouraging and sponsoring career development.
“We are delighted to sponsor these important awards and, in particular, to recognize the achievements of Tan Pham who has been named Holmesglen Institute’s Most Outstanding 3rd Year Apprentice in Printing Trades,” Frampton said, adding that the winner received a certificate of acknowledgment from the LIA and a gift card to the value of $100.
The LIA, whose Victorian chapter has recently reactivated following COVID lockdowns, is also planning a technical evening on 31 May at Southern Impact and will have a stand at PacPrint from 28 June – 1 July.
“The LIA welcomes all people in print to join us as we foster connections, share ideas, learn from technical sessions and encourage career development across our diverse and exciting sector,” said Frampton.
