Apprentice challenge deadline is looming
Time is running out for employers and training providers in Bradford to nominate their apprentices for 2014’s Brathay Apprentice Challenge.
Nominations close today for the challenge, which tests apprentices on their team-building, leadership, logistical and communication abilities.
During the challenge, apprentices take part in a community project and awareness-raising activities. Last year, the teams raised £35,000 for charities, and made more than 300 visits to schools to promote the value of apprenticeships.
Karen Woodward, of the National Apprenticeship Service, said: “The quality of work coming from the teams shows employers and the wider community about the impressive work apprentices can achieve.”
Teams of nine apprentices entering the challenge can be made up from a single employer, a group of small businesses, an industry sector, supply chain or training provider.
