The BCITO Flooring Apprentice of the Year Awards, held in Christchurch on Tuesday, 16 July, aims to recognise exceptional performance by tradespeople in the flooring industry.
Coromandel flooring apprentice Stafford Moody of Fagans’ NZ Ltd from Whitianga won the Supreme Apprentice of the Year Award as well as being named BCITO Stage Three Flooring Apprentice of the Year.

Stafford, who is now fully qualified, is employed by Fagans’ NZ Limited. As part of his BCITO apprenticeship, Stafford worked as a flooring installer and participated in off-job training at the Allied Trades Institute in Christchurch. The award was based on his performance undertaking a range of tasks at the Institute.

Principal Tutor at the Allied Trades Institute, Jeff Henry, says “Stafford was well prepared for the course. Even in his second year, there were occasions when Stafford would stay behind after the course to practise mitres and welding”.

“He worked tirelessly to hone his finishing skills and always showed good logic with his decisions. Stafford has extremely high expectations and consequently all his tasks were consistently completed to a very high standard.”
Stafford was “stoked” when he was named the Stage Three Flooring Apprentice of the Year. “It was a bit unexpected. There were two other classes and so you never know who is there and how good they are, but I’m very happy with it.”
