For the sixth year in a row Campaign Collective Members have successfully supported the Brathay Apprentice Challenge. 

Last week nine apprentices from GSK in Ulverston were named apprentice team of the year 2017 at Brathay Trust’s Windermere headquarters.

The Brathay Apprentice Challenge (#BAC17) sees teams of apprentices from across the country compete in a series of work-related challenges to develop teambuilding, leadership, logistical and communications skills and also engage with young people and employers, promoting the benefits of apprenticeships.

As part of the 2017 Challenge, apprentice teams used toolkits created by Collective Members and reached out to over 70,000 young people to discuss apprenticeships and recruited over 500 new employers to offer apprenticeships. Teams also reached out to their local communities, delivering 44 community projects to benefit young people.

Sarah Colombini, Campaign Collective Founder Member, said.

This year has been phenomenal, we have had over 650 apprentices engaged with this year’s Brathay Apprentice Challenge and the activity they have delivered with our support has meant that all of our targets have been exceeded.

Giving apprentices the tools and advice as to how to deliver compelling media and social media content has definitely paid off.  It has really highlighted the dedication, commitment and skills that the next generation of apprentices have.

We are proud to have delivered this year’s Brathay Apprentice Challenge with Brathay Trust and the National Apprenticeship Service.
