BCITO took the opportunity to thank Eric Blacklock, Dick Dodds, Gary Douglas and Murray Sivewright for their many years of service at the recent WANZ and GANZ Gala awards held in Auckland.
Gary Douglas, Dick Dodds, Murray Sivewright, (absent - Eric Blacklock)
In their capacity as industry assessors of Architectural Aluminium Joinery apprentices these gentlemen have shared vast experience and taken the time to mentor, support and at times advocate for the apprentices in their areas.
Firstly working for WANZ, then JITO and in early 2014, when JITO and BCITO merged there was a continued working relationship with the assessors for the next two years as the qualification assessment method was transitioned to the BCITO Assessment Team Model.
During their service to the industry Eric, Dick, Gary and Murray showed passion and commitment to assessing and supporting apprentices to ensure the industry had a highly skilled workforce and developing leaders.
We have a whole bunch of ideas and initiatives that we believe need to be addressed to improve skill development in construction.
