Last chance for East Lancs apprentice nominations
3:12pm Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
EAST Lancashire employers and training providers have until tomorrow to nominate their apprentices into 2014’s Brathay Apprentice Challenge.
Supported by the National Apprenticeship Service, it tests apprentices on their team building, leadership, logistical and communication abilities in a series of challenges.
During the challenge apprentices also take part in a community project and awareness raising activities.
Last year the teams raised £35,000 for local and national charities along with conducting more than 300 school visits promoting the value of apprenticeships.
They also delivered more than 60 community projects ranging from renovating derelict empty space to holding CV drop-ins for local young people.
Godfrey Owen, Brathay Trust chief executive, said:”The tasks that the teams complete as part of the challenge allow the apprentices to develop a huge range of skills.”
