Congratulations to 2022 ATNZ Apprentice of The Year, Bailey Dunn, for his appointment to the National Industry Advisory Group (Engineering). The role of the NIAG is to advise the Hanga-Aro-Rau Workforce Development Council about skills and training issues within the engineering sector. The group focuses on lifting the skill levels of Māori and other under-represented groups.
Bailey, of host company Patton Engineering Ltd., associates himself with three tribes, Ngapuhi, Te Arawa and Ngatai Kahungunu, and has significant responsibility as the sole apprentice appointed to the group. This is an amazing achievement for Bailey and builds on his Apprentice of the Year win.
Bailey will provide a specialist perspective on the sector’s current and future workforce needs and help influence how Hanga-Aro-Rau Workforce Development Council supports the industry in the future. ATNZ and Patton Engineering Ltd. are proud of this significant achievement in Bailey’s life.
