2021 ATOA Apprentice of the Year Winner: Bryce Noble


Bryce recently graduated as an Apprentice Fitter & Turner with his stream focusing on Fitting Machining. He chose an apprenticeship in engineering after realising in high school that general study was not the right fit for him. His apprenticeship has taught him to be proactive and his self-confidence has grown over time. 

When Bryce started his apprenticeship with an independent employer, he was unaware that the workplace had several issues.  He decided to leave not knowing if he could continue his apprenticeship.  He quickly found Ai Group Apprentice & Training Centre who transferred his apprenticeship in a short time.  Since then, he has had several host employers but Bryce has been able to quickly adapt to tasks and draws on experience from other engineering workshops. 

Bryce loves to tell people about his experience, and has competed in WorldSkills competitions, winning 2018 and 2020 WorldSkills Gold Medal Regional Award for sheet-metal and engineering machining categories.
