Justin Linnett was named the MWLP Work Placement Student of the Year at this year’s MG My Gateway Awards.
Justin recently completed his schooling at Picton High and was nominated by Fine Cut Joinery for his excellence in work placement, whilst studying Construction, as part of his HSC.
Justin was thrilled with the win. “I feel really good, really happy. I enjoyed my placement and fitted in with the team well. It’s great to be recognized,” he said.
Justin’s teacher (Mr. Nichols) commented “I knew he’d win. He was head and shoulders above the other students in his Construction class. He always does his best and thoroughly deserves this award. It couldn’t go to a better person.”
The runner up was Lincoln Beer, also from Picton High, who did his work placement in Metals and Engineering with Maxiquip and impressed them so much he is now their 1st year apprentice.
This award is the initiative of MG My Gateway and MWLP and rewards excellence in HSC VET work placement.
MWLP places some 3,000 students into the work place each year. Students who excel are nominated by their host employers for the Honour Roll. This year 121 students were nominated and then a short list of the top 20 was judged. The top three students were then invited to attend the MG My Gateway Awards for 2013.
