The Brathay Apprentice Challenge #BAC16, the official search to find the apprentice team of the year, is now open for nominations.

Teams undertake a series of work-related challenges to develop new skills, showcase their employer and engage with young people and employers to promote the benefits of apprenticeships.

Teams of nine apprentices can be from a single employer, a group of small businesses, an industry, supply chain or training provider.

Apprentices that take part gain vital skills including teambuilding, leadership, logistical and communications. They also benefit by becoming more confident, more aware of their own capabilities and ultimately more employable.

Nominations close midnight Monday 15 February.
