Tri-Schools Apprenticeship Branding Challenge

In December 2015 Great Torrington School received EiSG (Enterprise in schools grants) funding from DCC for Great Torrington School, Chulmleigh Academy and Braunton Academy to undertake the Tri-schools apprenticeship branding challenge.


The challenge was designed to inspire young people to pursue apprenticeships and broaden their understanding of apprenticeships in North Devon. The pupils from the three schools visited one of three local apprenticeship providers; RHS Rosemoor, Greenfield Engineering and Beran Instruments, spending a day with them learning about their company, speaking to their existing apprentices and designing a short promotional video.


A combination of the videos produced from each day are below and will be shown in the three schools to promote apprenticeships at the three companies.
