“The Real Apprentice, You’re Hired!”, Newport Raglan Court Project

The project was endorsed by Lord Alan Sugar. It was based on the formula of the reality TV show “The Apprentice, You’re Fired” with a construction twist. It aimed to transform a community, empower young people and create employment. Through the project, we recruited local youth who were not in employment, education or training, to be the apprentice. They learned professional skills such as interior design, carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, tiling, etc. The project enabled the young people to gain confidence and develop a career. All apprentices were offered a full time position within the construction industry. The project has created 27 jobs so far and won 4 national business and engineering awards.
