Next, we moved on to a TikTok challenge where teams of 4 had to demonstrate why apprentices are important and why they chose to do one with Dalkia. Supported by Ashleigh Layton (Head of Marketing), each team created a TikTok which was then judged by Noel.
After lunch was 5 group challenges which tested the apprentices on their teamwork and communication skills. One of the challenges included the “Task Master” which had a strong focus on these 2 core skills. During this time, each team was awarded points on how well they completed the challenges. The various tasks encouraged apprentices to think about the 2 core skills required so that they can apply their learnings to everyday working life. The scores were close and put to a final test as we moved on to a general quiz.
To conclude the event, Andy Voase (Executive Director – Head of Public Sector) hosted a Q&A session which raised some very interesting questions. Overall, it was a fantastic day with great energy in the room. We look forward to the next February event when we will celebrate National Apprenticeships Week.
