You will also hear from Simon Colman, Head of Commercial Solutions for SHA, who is the new head judge, and Vuyo Lee, independent consultant and third year judge, what they will be looking for throughout the tasks. Colman and Lee will be sharing what they believe the qualities are of a winner and what exactly it is that they will be looking for when judging. “It’s all about balancing teamwork, while still standing out as a strong individual”, Simon stressed.

The series once again attracted the cream of the crop in terms of apprentices as well as a record amount of sponsors, which we are eternally thankful for. One of our very important sponsors of this series is FNB Insurance Brokers who hosted the apprentices at the FNB Conference and Learning Centre throughout filming week. This is a very important sponsorship and we would like to thank them for this.
