TAFE - Golden Trowel Awards
Any industry you are in will only ever be as good as the new blood coming through. The skill and enthusiasm of the younger generation that will one day lead the charge is of vital importance for any industry to thrive and be secure moving forward.
Tile Power has always held this ideal and as such the group has worked with Macquarie Fields TAFE in South Western Sydney for the better part of 15 years in assisting, supporting and sponsoring the training and grooming of the next generation of tilers. Apprentices all over Sydney and beyond are put through their paces and taught the fundamentals of what it is to be a skilled installer.
Also with assistance from the NSW government, the teachers at TAFE do an outstanding job with these students in making sure the knowledge and intricacies of the trade are passed on in the correct way. Once a year these skills are recognised at an awards ceremony call the Tile Power Golden Trowel Awards.
The top performers each year are awarded for their outstanding efforts in different categories. This is a great event which goes a long way to growing the confidence and skillset of our future tilers and also to strengthening the tiling industry.
