Brathay Apprenticeship Team of the Year 2015

Apprentices from Dale Power Solutions and Sellafield Ltd have been jointly named the Apprentice Team of the Year, following a gruelling seven-month challenge against the country’s leading apprentice employers and training providers.

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.

The logistical and team building Finale held at Brathay Trust’s Windermere headquarters tested the teams individual and group strength mentally and physically. It also developed their leadership, team building and communication skills.

The eight finalists were selected from 50 teams and 700 apprentices who entered the Challenge. Since January, the teams have staged more than 300 school visits to talk about the benefits of apprenticeships, recruited over 100 employers and delivered 47 community projects.

The Challenge offers an enhanced apprenticeship as it tests and develops the non-technical work skills and personal attributes of competing apprentices.
