“Apprentice team of the year”

The Brathay Apprentice Challenge, supported by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) aimed to find the ‘apprentice team of the year.’ After a six month competition, nine apprentices from Innovia Films have won the prestigious title.

As part of the challenge the teams were required to give media interviews explaining the benefits of apprenticeships. The challenge aimed to test the non-technical work skills such as problem solving as well as the personal attributes of those involved.

Minister for Skills, Matthew Hancock, said: “When you look at the talent and enthusiasm shown by Innovia Films, it’s obvious why more businesses are choosing to hire Apprentices. 92% of employers who take on Apprentices say they lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce.

“The competitors in this year’s Brathay Apprentice Challenge are an asset to their companies and an inspiration to other young people. The challenge is further evidence that Apprenticeships are fast becoming the norm for young people who want to achieve their career goals through an alternative route to University.”
