Churchill's Young Apprentice

A busy and exciting atmosphere took place last Thursday lunch time as teams taking part in Churchill's annual Young Apprentice Competition fought it out. This is a great opportunity for GCSE Business Studies students in Years 7-9  to gain some practical experience of running their own business. The winning team were Year 7 group ‘Creative Christmas gifts’.

Our judges included, Liz Lister from Graphic Science and Sixth Form Business Studies students. The 19 Apprentice teams were assessed through a combination of observation and probing questions from the judges, judging how well the younger students worked as a team, whether they were being enterprising, had planning taken place and how creative they had been. A big thanks to our sponsor - Graphic Science - and Liz Lister, who presented the winners with the cup and their prizes.
