En­ter­pris­ing pupils in­vited for chal­lenge

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special - Dou­glas Dickie

Bud­ding en­trepreneurs in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing in­vited to take part in a chal­lenge loosely based on the BBC’s “The Apprentice”TV pro­gramme.

The In­spir­ing En­ter­prise Chal­lenge will take place dur­ing two weeks of the sum­mer hol­i­days with 16 places up for grabs for se­nior school pupils. The chal­lenge will be sim­i­lar to the TV pro­gramme in that pupils will take part in a num­ber of busi­ness led chal­lenges over two weeks, pro­vid­ing them with great ex­pe­ri­ences and talk­ing points to in­clude in CVs and in­ter­views in the fu­ture, one big dif­fer­ence is that no one is fired.

The pro­gramme will run ev­ery week day from Mon­day, July 25 to Thurs­day, Au­gust 4.

Pupils will meet at coun­cil HQ and they will be re­quired to make their own way there and back each day. Trans­port to and from the busi­ness lo­ca­tions, and lunch ev­ery day, will be pro­vided.

The chal­lenge is open to 16 pupils from S4/5/6 who are at­tend­ing a South La­nark­shire Coun­cil Sec­ondary school.

In­ter­ested pupils should get in touch with their deputy head teach­ers in the first in­stance.

The clos­ing date for all ap­pli­ca­tions is Fri­day, April 29, 2016.

For an ap­pli­ca­tion form email: eliot. jor­dan@south­la­nark­shire.gov.uk.
