As part of our long-standing relationship with Plymouth CC we are really pleased that their 5 project management apprentices and 4 from across the council, have been recognised in a national completion, they really deserve it.
Here is the detail (from Plymouth CC)
Our nine apprentices, who have been taking part in the Brathay Apprentice Challenge have been announced as joint winners of the Brathay’s Community Project Award, for their orchard project in Ernesettle and joint runners up in the main competition.
The finalists were selected from 50 teams and 700 apprentices who entered the Challenge. Since January, the competing teams have staged more than 300 school visits to talk about the benefits of apprenticeships, recruited over 100 employers and delivered 47 community projects.
Our team of apprentices, came second in the finals of the Brathay Apprentice Challenge after raising over £3,300 for Epilepsy UK and creating a community orchard.
They would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported their challenge, helped them raise money for Epilepsy UK and provided guidance and advice over the last seven months.
The Brathay Apprentice Challenge, the official search for the apprentice team of the year is supported by the National Apprenticeship Service and saw eight finalists raise over £41,000 for nine charities. In the past four years the Challenge has raised over £136,000 for charities across the country.
