Spencer Martin is an award-winning apprentice mechanic who lives with his partner at Wurrumiyanga. In 2018 he will complete his apprenticeship in Late Motor Vehicle Technology with Nguiu Garage, proudly supported by TITEB and CDU.

Spencer is proud of his achievements. In 2015 he won the 2015 MTA Indigenous Apprentice of the Year, and overall Runner Up Apprentice of the Year, and in 2016 he won the Advanced Training International (ATI) Frank May Automotive Apprentice Award.

According to Spencer, attendance is the most important thing in this business, getting to work on time, listening to your boss and working as a team. He is looking forward to running his own business and getting Tiwi young people involved in the future.
