The Community Apprentice

opportunity-location B9 4AA Birmingham
opportunity-dates 01 Sep 2018 - 01 Jan 2023
Loosely based on the TV series, The Apprentice, Community-Apprentice is an inter-school competition which requires young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, to develop, and crucially demonstrate, the competencies most valued by employers. There are however five crucial differences: Firstly teams of young people compete to make the biggest difference to their community, rather than profit. Secondly, young people can only compete, and win, as a team. Because of this emphasis, Lord Sugar’s role is played by a local leader with responsibility for the quality of life in the city. We're also looking for different traits to those celebrated on the TV programme. These include empathy, communication, resilience and problem solving. Unlike the TV programme where Karen and Nick are there to spot failings, every team has their own ‘Karen and Nick' to support them. These are volunteers drawn from local companies ( Please get in touch if you would like to get involced) who help students reflect on their experiences and evidence their skills development
