What is the Apprenticeship Challenge?

The Apprenticeship Challenge is a project that businesses who recruit apprentices are invited to take part in. Local apprentices are encouraged to plan and undertake a project that will improve or benefit their local communities, utilising skills they have learned through their apprenticeship as well as embrace opportunities to develop new skills.

The main objectives of the challenge are:

  • To demonstrate the quality of apprentices employed in Glasgow.
  • To demonstrate the high level of training offered by businesses and organisations in Glasgow.
  • To promote the benefits of apprenticeships.
  • To encourage more businesses in Glasgow to consider offering apprenticeships.


Who can participate?

The Challenge is open to companies in Glasgow with employees currently following a Foundation, Modern or Graduate level apprenticeship framework. These projects must be planned, co-ordinated and executed by apprentices. Projects can be completed individually or in teams and must benefit the local community. 

How does it work?

Organisations should initially register by Friday 27 April 2018 using the registration form. Please send completed registration forms to kerri.haynes@glasgowchamberofcommerce.com.

Projects will run from 30 April 2018 until 28 September 2018 when teams will submit a project portfolio for judging. 

Teams will be invited to a showcase event in November where they will present their project to a panel of judges who will decide a winner for the Glasgow region.

Teams will be asked to provide ongoing updates to the DYW Glasgow team who will publicise this great work appropriately across our communication channels.

The DYW Glasgow team are happy to support teams throughout the projects where required.
