NCL Apprentice is a three week competition open to all students across the university. It happens over three consecutive Wednesday afternoons on 27th February, 6th March and 13th March from 12 – 6pm. Each week the students are set a challenge to work on in teams and pitch back their solutions at the end of the day to a panel of judges. There is a prize of £300 up for grabs for the winners.
Firstly students can apply to take part in the competition by following the link www.ncl.ac.uk/careers/nclapprentice

The second opportunity will be appropriate for students who are interested, but perhaps dont have the time commitment for the three week competition.
We are looking for a students to sit on a judging panel in round 2 which is March 6th from 4-6pm. This will include you observing student pitches and deliberating with other judges on who should make it through to the next round.
