The Apprentice Challenge is aimed at year 10 students. The challenge takes place during the autumn term and targeted towards students who are thinking of applying to become Student Leaders. The challenge helps them to prepare for the demands of a Student Leadership role as they are required to demonstrate various leadership and employability skills such as team work, communication, creativity, initiative, problem solving, budgeting and time management.
Students work in houses to come up with a business idea, they then submit a business plan to secure start-up capital that is donated by FOBS (Friends of Brookfield School). They then trade their business and all profits raised are then donated back to FOBS. The house that generates the most profit wins the challenge. This year’s challenge starts in November.
