Screwfix has launched its Trade Apprentice 2021 competition, with the chance for one top apprentice to win the ultimate prize bundle.
The annual award is returning for its seventh year, to celebrate the next generation of tradespeople as they aim for recognition at the start of their career. One talented individual will be named Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2021 and will receive a career-boosting prize package worth £10,000.
The prize includes everything a future tradesperson may need to start up their own business – £5,000 of tools, a £3,000 training budget and £2,000 worth of technology. The college where they study will also receive £2,000.
Simon Jackson, Screwfix Customer and Digital director, says: “Every year we are amazed by the outstanding quality of entrants and, this year, we are on the lookout for apprentices who go above and beyond to succeed within their chosen trade.
“We’ve seen how this career-boosting accolade and £10,000 prize bundle helps kickstart an apprentice’s career. Good luck to everyone who enters – we can’t wait to crown our winner.”
Apprentices can enter directly or be put forward by their college lecturer or employer. It’s completely free and is open to all apprentices who are in college or working with a mentor. All entrants must be over the age of 16.
Entries are open until 21 February. Find out more here.
