This is your chance to find that perfect Apprentice.
Oh, and get them working with your company, free for a year!

How? Well, the lovely folk at Oaklands College are funding this great opportunity for a local company to win an apprentice for a whole year. That's worth £6000!


What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship offers a unique way of achieving work and academic goals by combining on-the-job training as the learner gains important qualifications in the classroom, all of which will enhance their career prospects in their field of choice.

How does it work?
Most training is carried out at the place of work through an Individual Learning Plan. This is designed to provide learners with the support, supervision and work-based mentoring they will need.

An assessor will work alongside the employer to monitor the student's progress against nationally recognised qualifications within the chosen vocational area.

This ensures that both the needs of the student – and those of the employer – are being met at a local level and the qualifications gained meet the highest national standards.

What Apprenticeships are offered?
Accounting; Amenity Horticulture; Business & Administration; Child Care; Customer Care; Electrical; Engineering; Equine; Health & Social Care; Information Technology; Plumbing; Wood Occupations (Carpentry).

Who can enter the competition?
Any Hertfordshire business can enter. Maybe there's just two of you in the office, maybe you're a charity... it doesn't matter, we'd love to hear from you.

How do I enter?
Just fill in the form below. Finalists will be selected by a JACK fm/Oaklands College panel and will have their companies highlighted on air and online in the final week of the competition before the winner is picked.

Is Steve Folland going to pretend to be Lord Alan Sugar and make us all call him Sir Steve?
We regret that neither JACK fm Hertfordshire nor Oaklands College is able to guarantee that this won't be the case.
Now go fill that form in. Good luck!

Winner announced during JACK's Breakfast in February 2012.
