National Apprentice Challenge
Multi award winning competition...
The National Apprentice Challenge is the largest residential competition for creative and ambitious students in The UK. In teams of four, students with a wide-range of backgrounds will go through an all-expenses-paid residential programme filled with exciting practical challenges. The reality-based tasks will test their creativity & their entrepreneurial mindset and help the participants be more aware of their strengths and better prepared for their future careers.
During the competition, the participants will have a chance to network with like-minded entrepreneurial students nation-wide and receive internships based on their performance.
The winners will return with £1,000 cash, business mentoring and the National Title of Student Apprentice Winners!
This competition is open to students with any academic background. No prior business experience is required and you do not need to have a business idea to qualify as long as you are committed and have a Go-For-It attitude.
All the action takes place in teams of four, so put together your team and let's get started!
“I am amazed by the quality of the participants in National Apprentice Challenge! Candidly I think there were 4-5 people that I would certainly be interested in taking on board as part of our group.”
“The overall experience of the National Apprentice Challenge was something the team will never forget. The tasks we were involved in gave us a very meaningful insight into the life in a business environment and helped us learn more about our key strengths and areas of improvement.”
“This is the first time we have entered the National Apprentice Challenge and I have been impressed by the professional approach of the organisation. National competitive events such as this are so important in enabling our students to show employers the evidence of how they have developed their business skills... The feedback of our students has been excellent and we eagerly await putting teams together for next year's competition.”
“Taking part in NAC was an unforgettable and very valuable experience. The tasks were very intense but the fact that they were practical helped myself and my team implement the knowledge that we gained throughout our degrees and discover our key strengths. I feel inspired by the competition and decided to take my idea further, especially as I have also received a grant of £1,000 and business mentoring.”
“The best part of my experience was being put under intense pressure to formulate a viable business plan in a short time and then pitch it to experienced professionals who would really grill your idea. That kind of experience was invaluable – Gave me confidence for the next pitch I have to deliver”
