Apprenticeship Challenge 2018

MIDDLESBROUGH’S team saw off stiff competition from neighbouring authorities to win this year’s Apprenticeship Challenge.

They joined in friendly rivalry with teams of fellow apprentices from Redcar & Cleveland and Darlington Councils in a series of physical and mental tests.

The Apprenticeship Challenge – now in its sixth year – took place at Middlesbrough Sports Village, hosted by the Middlesbrough Council Apprenticeship Team.

After a very close, hard fought but fair competition and a nerve-racking tie break, Middlesbrough Council Apprentices emerged victorious.

Winning team members Declan Hoyland, Demi-Leigh Thompson, Ellie Thomas, Emmie Ferguson, Lauren Davies, Namrah Zabeir and Stephen Allen were awarded a medal and each received a congratulatory gift voucher.

Middlesbrough Community Learning Business Development Advisor Jessica Frank said: “Well done to our brilliant apprentices whose enthusiasm and team spirt helped win the competition for Middlesbrough once again.

“It was a great day that was enjoyed by all, and a really fitting way to mark National Apprenticeship Week.

“All the teams were a credit to their respective Councils and employing organisations, and can be proud of their performance.”
