2020 CAPRICORN RISING STARS PROGRAM LAUNCHED
Capricorn is very pleased to be relaunching the Capricorn Rising Stars program again this February
More than an “Apprentice of the Year” competition, Capricorn Rising Stars is an opportunity for our Members to recognise, reward and retain their most promising apprentices.
Through the simple act of submitting a nomination, Capricorn Members can encourage their apprentices, letting them know that they have a bright future ahead of them. This helps stoke their passion for automotive to keep them committed to a long career in the industry.
As the numbers of people taking up auto apprenticeships continue to decline (11.2 percent of all apprentices were automotive trainees in 2018 compared to 16.8 percent in 2008), the need for programs such as Capricorn Rising Stars has never been more apparent.
We want to ensure all those working towards a career in automotive, see it through to become our qualified repairers and workshop owners of the future.
Capricorn Rising Stars is proudly supported by Capricorn Preferred Suppliers Castrol, Repco, Autodata Training, The Workshop Whisperer and TaT who have provided some amazing prizes for the overall winner and top five finalists.
This is highlighted by the major prize of an all-expenses paid trip to the Vodafone 600 for the winning apprentice, their workshop boss and two friends.
Capricorn Members are encouraged to nominate their apprentices online now at www.capricorn.coop
Thanks to all those who are supporting the industry by nominating their apprentice and best of luck to all who take part!
