Member for Myall Lakes, Tanya Thompson has announced that applications are now
open for the Bert Evans Apprentice Scholarships and encourages all hard-working
apprentices to apply.

The scholarships support apprentices who are experiencing financial or personal
hardship, demonstrate a high aptitude for vocational education and are committed to
completing on and off the job training.

Mrs Thompson said a total of 751 scholarships have been awarded to outstanding
apprentices in NSW since 2014.

“An apprenticeship is a great way to kick-start a career, and apprentices are vital to
our State’s growth, but we also understand it’s not always easy to complete a
qualification,” Tanya Thompson said.

Shadow Minister for Skills, TAFE and Tertiary Education Justin Clancy said
apprentices were vital to driving NSW forward.

“We want to back our apprentices by giving them a helping hand to complete their
training and gain a qualification so they can make a strong contribution in their jobs
and in the lives of their families and communities,” Mr Clancy said.

“Across the state, many industries are experiencing vacancies, so this scholarship
could not have come at a better time.”

The scholarship program is named in honour of the late Bert Evans AO, a passionate
advocate of vocational education for more than 30 years.
