The HVIA National Apprentice of the Year Award is an annual award open to apprentices in the final stages of their training from the heavy vehicle repair, service and manufacturing sectors. The entrants are nominated by their employer.
Nominees are judged by interview with a panel appointed by the Association who base their assessment on a series of selection criteria.
The award is part of HVIA’s suite of national awards, with regional finalists acknowledged in local events in the lead-up to HVIA’s Gala Awards Dinner held each November.
The events highlight the achievements of some of the industry’s most talented and dedicated apprentices.
