Applications open for The Apprentice

Lasian_Alumni Member Posts: 659 Pioneering

Hello everyone,

The production company behind The Apprentice has been in touch regarding the next season. Applications for Season 14 of the show are now open and they are eager to get disabled people applying to be part of it. 

The applications close at midnight 29th January 2018. So if you're an entrepreneur and are interested, now is your chance to get involved! Here's the official blurb:

Lord Sugar has already invested over £2,000,000 in business startups through the apprentice.

The Apprentice is back and it’s open to all!

Never thought the Apprentice was for you?

Think again, anyone can have a seed of an idea and become an entrepreneur, you just need the backing.

If you apply to Apprentice 14, that seed could become a fully-fledged and funded business!

The winning candidate will receive an investment of up to £250,000, and will go into a 50:50 partnership with Lord Sugar.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to impress Britain's toughest backer, go to the BBC website for details of how to apply.

Auditions will be happening across the country throughout the month of February. Go on, show us what you’ve got!
