Australian Apprenticeships, the Federal Government Agency which manages apprenticeships in its Centres across the States and Territories, has recently recognised Troy Everett as an Australian Apprenticeships Ambassador. The appointment is in recognition of his excellent work in promoting the skilled trade of bricklaying in Australia and around the world.
Troy has provided technical advice in many countries (recently in Russia) and as well has managed the bricklaying category at the WorldSkills International competition over a number of years. He is currently mentoring Sam Spong, Australia’s entrant in the next International in Brazil, as part of the ABBTF’s “World Class Bricklaying Scholarship”support program.
Troy was also unanimously voted by more than 30 countries to be the International Chief Expert for Bricklaying category at this next and 43rd WorldSkills International Competition in São Paulo.
The full article announcing Troy’s recognition is available at the Australian Apprenticeships (AA) website. The ABBTF team congratulates Troy on his worthy appointment as Ambassador for the bricklaying trade and endorses the AA’s comments on his value to the trade and apprentices in training.
