In their bid to win the Brathay Apprentice Challenge, our team will undertake a series of exciting and interactive work-related challenges to develop new skills and showcase their employer by engaging with young people and businesses to promote the benefits of apprenticeships.

Our hardworking apprentices need your support to cheer them through the regional heats – you can show your support by following and sharing our journey on Twitter @TynemetBAC17

The regional heats, which end on 26th April 2017, consist of a community project to benefit young people and activities that raise the profile of the team, their employer and apprenticeships in general.

We will find out on 17th May 2017 if our team has made the National Finals, but in the meantime, we look forward to keeping you updated @TynemetBAC17
