Capricorn Rising Stars nominations open

David Fraser Group CEO, Capricorn Society Ltd

The Capricorn Rising Stars Apprentice of the Year program is an opportunity for Capricorn Members to acknowledge apprentices for their ongoing effort and hard work.
Recognising and rewarding apprentices for the value they bring to the workshop will keep them engaged and excited for the promising careers ahead of them.
The award recognises apprentices with a passion for automotive, a positive can-do attitude, and a strong commitment to forging a long career as a repairer.
This unique judging criteria means Members can recognise their star apprentices as they continue to develop their technical proficiency.
To create a level field for all apprentices, Capricorn Rising Stars focuses on initiative, the eagerness to learn and a commitment to industry in all types of workshops and disciplines; from panel and fabrication to auto electrical, general mechanical, heavy diesel and more.
I would encourage all Members to nominate their apprentices as a Capricorn Rising Star. Not only does this present a good opportunity to embed a positive team culture; recognising apprentices is an important way to help the industry to attract the best talent and retain future leaders.
More than $20,000 in cash and prizes is up for grabs to be shared amongst the overall winner, the five finalists and the workshops who nominated them. Every apprentice nominated will benefit by receiving a certificate sent to their workshop.
We send a big thanks to long-term program sponsors Castrol, Repco and the Workshop Whisperer, who have demonstrated their commitment to the future of the automotive industry by donating these fantastic prizes.
To nominate your star apprentices or to find more information, including competition terms and conditions, visit Entries close 30 April 2022.
Yours in cooperation,
David Fraser
