Capgemini Flies the Welsh Flag for National Schools’ Challenge

Categories : PublicLocal news
Last call for entries to find the brightest business brain within the region

National Schools' Challenge 2015 logoCapgemini UK is calling for entries to the TARGETjobs National Schools’ Challenge, which it is proudly sponsoring in Wales.
The TARGETjobs National Schools’ Challenge in Wales gives 16-19 year olds the chance to benchmark themselves against thousands of students from schools and colleges within the region and across the UK. The first part of the challenge involves a set of four online aptitude tests which must be completed by Friday 20 February 2015.

The top 10 pupils in every region will then be invited to take part in the Grand Final which will take place at Wragge & Co, Birmingham on Friday 13 March 2015 with a first prize of £500 for the student and £1,000 for their school.
Andy McDonough, Welsh Government Account Director at Capgemini, said: “We know through our own Apprenticeship Programme in Wales that there is some great young talent in this region, so we are delighted to be supporting this element of the National Schools’ Challenge. This is a fantastic opportunity for entrants to demonstrate their ability, energy, and fresh, innovative ideas, to a host of major organisations. We’d like to wish all the Welsh entrants the very best of luck.”
