Why Us?

  • We offer a proven model (backed by a randomised control trial) so you know that you will be investing in a programme that will produce outcomes for young people and society.

  • We know what we are doing, because we’ve been doing it for a long time – 15 years to be precise. In that time we've worked with hundreds of schools and thousands of young people.

  • We have a well established network of schools and a waiting list of many more.  We have the flexibility to work with schools where you may already have a partnership.

  • We have a local infrastructure, but are big enough to ensure that this is supported by specialist national staff managing quality issues such as risk assessments and safeguarding.

  • We have a track record of working with a wide range of companies from global corporations to local firms.  Some of our partnerships have lasted for seven years because we deliver on what we say we do, value our partners and have high standards of account management.

  • We are experts in education business partnerships and through experience know the best ways to enable your employees to make a difference for young people.

  • Community-Apprentice is an engaging brand and through association communicates your commitment to young people’s development and your community.

  • The competition is backed by leading community figures.  The Lord Sugar’s role is played by elected mayor George Ferguson in Bristol, Leader of the Local Authority, Sir Albert Bore, in Birmingham and Chair of the Assembly, Jennette Arnold, in London. 

  • Best of all we attract great young people committed to making the world a better place. Their refreshing idealism inspires everyone they work with!
