Celebrating Scottish Apprentice Week 2020

Under the banner “Talent Without Limits”, 23 apprentices from across the University of St Andrews including the School of Medicine’s Business Administration apprentice, Rachel Horn enjoyed a fun day of team building exercises led by the 255 Scottish Medical Regiment from the Army Reserve on Thursday 5 March at the University Sports Centre.  Split into 3 teams, the apprentices tackled tasks requiring teamwork, problem solving and memory recall.  Rachel said:

I really enjoyed the apprentice day getting to meet all the other apprentices from the University.  The team building exercises with the Army Reserve was a fun way to get to know each other and to bring out our competitiveness in the challenges.

After lunch, the apprentices created some short videos about what they enjoy about their apprenticeship training and heard from former apprentices, who are now employed full time at the university.

Members of the winning team each received an Amazon gift voucher from QA apprenticeships, who generously sponsored the day.
