RORY SUPPORTS INNOVIA IN THEIR BID TO BECOME APPRENTICE TEAM OF THE YEAR
Rory has congratulated the nine apprentices from Innovia Films who have secured a place as finalists in the Brathay Apprentice Challenge – the official search for the apprentice team of the year, supported by the National Apprenticeship Service.
Representatives from Brathay Trust, British Chambers of Commerce and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills judged the regional heats along with Tim Campbell, founder of the Bright Ideas Trust and the Mayor of London’s Ambassador for Training and Enterprise, before selecting nine teams from the 90 organisations that entered, to go through to the final. Following two months delivering community level projects, all finalists will now go on to complete further fundraising and awareness raising activity, with the event culminating in a series of team building tests, logistical challenges and physical competitions at Brathay Trust’s Windermere headquarters from 10th to 12th June 2013.
Rory said:”Its great to see a Cumbrian team get through to the finals of the Brathay Apprentice Challenge. The Innovia team have been fantastic within Wigton, and particularly in their support of Chrysalis.Their effort and attitude embodies the Cumbrian spirit and enthusiasm to help and support one’s own community that I see time and again, and perfectly encapsulates Brathay’s mission of encouraging young people to engage positively in their communities.They thoroughly deserve to be crowned the national apprentice team of the year, and I wish them the best of luck ahead of the finals in June.”
