The biennial Golden Trowel Competition is Australia’s only team blocklaying competition to encourage excellence among apprentices while recognising the valuable skills of young people in a skill-shortage trade. The best blocklaying apprentices from around Australia will gather to compete for the coveted Golden Trowel in an intensive two-day event.
Since its inception in 1993, the event is renowned for producing outstanding young blocklayers who have gone on to win other industry awards and establish a successful career in the industry.
The 13th Golden Trowel Award competition will be held at TAFE NSW, Nirimba College in Western Sydney from the 15th to 17th October 2017, with teams competing from around Australia.
We look forward to welcoming the teams to Sydney for the event and would like to thank our members and sponsors for their support and generous contributions.
