This Victorian private training provider began in 1996 and currently has 168 trainees over nine sites. The staff has extensive industry experience and Mike has been an active participant in MINTRAC, the national training and research body and other industry activities. He is also an active Victorian committee member for ACPET, the Australian Council for Private Education and Training.
Another food sector finalist on the night was John Leontiades, apprentice baker from Louttit Bay Bakery in Lorne. Getting to the final four in the Apprentice of the Year category is an outstanding achievement. We wish him well with further endeavours, and he already has the national LA Judge Competition win on his resume. Early in the evening John was warmly congratulated on being a finalist, by Andrew O’Hara, the Baking Industry Association of Victoria president and GM at Phillippa’s Bakery.
The VFITB would like to encourage all food processing sector employers and trainers to put forward their staff, training providers, companies, for the 2013 Victorian Training Awards. It is a wonderful way to recognise talent, commitment and innovation by all those involved in training.
