ALE apprentice recognised in double award triumph

« Back to news


ALE apprentice, Jack Todd, was the winner of the ‘Award of Excellence’ and ‘Fourth Year Apprentice of the Year’ at the GAGAL Apprentice and Trainee Awards in Queensland, Australia.

ALE takes on many apprentices across its global network of branches. In the Gladstone branch, ALE hires apprentices through Gladstone Area Group Apprentices Limited (GAGAL) –  a local Government body set up in 1985 to address the skills shortages in the local area.

Jack, who has been working in ALE’s Gladstone branch as a fully-qualified crane technician, was put forward for the award by his GAGAL representative. Joining in 2014, Jack won the award because of his attitude towards work and his peers, the quality of his work, and his punctual timekeeping.

The General Manager of ALE’s Gladstone branch, Bill Wuertz, said Jack had been an exceptional apprentice who had proved himself under pressure: “Jack is our 11th apprentice in the 20 years we have been established here. By bringing apprentices like Jack through the business, we build our business for the future,” he said.

“For Jack to win this, it’s great for his colleagues who’ve trained him and great for the business as a whole.”

Jack has recently been offered a permanent role when he finishes his apprenticeship next year.
