Apprentices face Grade 9 girls in final task

It has been weeks filled with challenging and exciting tasks, but as the apprentices rallied through their final task for The Insurance Apprentice 2016, they were faced with what seemed to be a difficult audience to captivate.

Insurance as a career

In the sixth episode of The Insurance Apprentice, the apprentices were taken out of their comfort zones yet again, as they headed to St Stithians College, a private school situated on the border of Randburg and Sandton, with thanks to Innovation Group who transported them to the school, to face what had to be one of their toughest audiences.

The task for the day, sponsored by Inseta saw the apprentices complete a challenging task of persuading Grade 9 girls into considering insurance as a career path of choice in the future.

Judge Theo and his fellow panel members Nadia Starr, Learning Division Manager at Inseta, and Vuyo Lee, accompanied the apprentices to the school as they sat in and listened during the presentations.

Team one, known as Think Pink, consisted of Celina Bhima, Chris Caalsen and Unathi Ntengo. And team two, known as the Beliebers, consisted of Alicia Narainsamy, Andre Brooks, and Karabo Kopeka.

Bearing in mind that this was a younger audience, each team’s level of creativity was tested to the max as they tried to entice the students and win over their votes.

Questions were asked by the students and each team strategically tried to answer the questions as they interacted with the students.
