I’ve been really impresssed to hear that Sir Alan Sugar has launched a junior version of The Apprentice for ten 16 and 17 year olds. The winner will win a prize worth up to £25,000.
Sir Alan said:
“It is my long held belief that we should be doing more to promote enterprise amongst young people, as the future of our economy relies on them.
“I passionately believe that the key to business success lies in hard work and common sense and that we should encourage our young people as much as possible.”
Candidates from all social backgrounds are being encouraged to apply – whether they are straight A students, from grammar or public school or have no academic qualifications.
“Understandably, the contestants won’t have any previous business experience, but all I want to see from them is an entrepreneurial aptitude and an enthusiasm to succeed,” said Sir Alan, who left school at 16 with no qualifications.
Anyone wishing to take part in the show can apply via The Apprentice website.
