Team MBDA consists of eight apprentices representing missile systems organisation MBDA (a company with multiple national apprenticeship training awards) within a UK wide competition, the “Brathay Apprenticeship Challenge”.
The team will be competing against seven other companies with heralded apprenticeship schemes, in aid of Help for Heroes and Bolton Hospice, to win the title as “the best national apprentice team”.
To gain this title, the team needs to prove themselves over three tasks including
1) raising the most money for charity
2) raising the profile of apprenticeships
3) competing in a day long physical activity (including rowing 5 miles).
The competition comes to a close on the 16th March. For more information about apprenticeships and the challenge itself you can follow the team on Twitter:
