The Dux Scholarship is designed to recognise ATT’s highest performing first year apprentice within the plumbing, P&G or P&D classifications. Jaycob Walker of Laser Plumbing East Tamaki (pictured above) was awarded the first Dux Scholarship this year, describing the opportunity as “life-changing”.
For the recipient of each Dux Scholarship, Dux will fund the ATT training fees for the remaining three years of their apprenticeship. Additionally, to recognise the contribution that quality employers make to developing successful apprentices, the recipient’s host business will receive $7,500 worth of Dux products throughout the term of the scholarship.
To provide ongoing support to ATT’s new apprentices, the Dux Scholarship is awarded on an annual basis. The 2015 Dux Scholarship selection process uncovered the high calibre of ATT apprentices - we're excited to see what 2016 brings!
The selection process involves a set of strict criteria, which focuses on host business feedback, work attendance, ATT Area Manager feedback and face-to-face interviews. The scholarship is awarded to the best overall performing apprentice, including academic, practical and personality considerations
To be eligible for the Dux Scholarship, the apprentice must have completed, or be completing the first year of their ATT apprenticeship during 2015. To begin the process, eligible apprentices must be nominated by their host business, which have been contacted via email.
