Bright Sparks Acknowledged at Scholarship Awards

The Middy’s Scholarship 2015 Awards Function was held on Friday 13 November at Temple Brewing in Melbourne. The twelve winners and their partners celebrated with canapés and drinks alongside previous Scholarship Winners and Middy’s Directors...

The Middy’s Scholarship Program, now in its 7th year, continues to be a success with a record number of applicants received for our 2015 Program. 

The Scholarship Program awarded six Gold Packages, each worth $10,000 and six Silver Packages, each worth $5,000. These Scholarship Packages allow recipients to undertake tailored training in 2016 from a range of courses incorporating subjects such as Energy Efficiency, Project Management, Estimating and OH&S, among many other business-related topics. Further training will enable these progressive industry professionals to upgrade their job skills, enhance their project management skills and improve their business knowledge.

Thank you to our judges: Rod Lovett (NECA), Keith Van der Zyden (Energy Safe Victoria), Jeff Patchell (Connection Magazines) and John Clarke (NECA Education & Careers) who were looking for forward thinking electricians who see challenging times and new technologies as opportunities rather than obstacles.

Congratulations to our 12 successful winners, we look forward to hearing about all the great opportunities that will arise from this extensive program.
