The Young Apprentice 2012 returns later this week, as another bunch of talented teenagers take on a task of a lifetime.
But which of them will have what it takes to prove themselves when the pressure is on? Meeting them in the boardroom, Lord Sugar warns them:
“I don’t like teacher’s pets and I don’t like school bullies. This is about the real world. I’m not making you sit exams; the only grade you’ll get here is ‘F’ for Fired.”
With tasks including designing a new cookbook, sourcing props for the English National Opera,
branding a hair-styling product and selling goods at Womad festival, the candidates will quickly learn that Lord Sugar never wastes time as they are thrown in the deep end from the outset.
Lord Sugar is, once again, aided by his no-nonsense advisers Nick Hewer and Karren Brady who will scrutinise the candidates’ every move during the weekly tasks.
They will live in a luxury mansion in Hampstead, giving them a taste of the affluent lifestyles they aspire to. For some, it’s their first time away from home; for all it’s the chance to experience what their life could be like as a high-flyer. When the winner is crowned they will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be mentored by Britain’s most famous boss.
Lord Sugar’s search for his next Young Apprentice is about to begin...
Young Apprentice starts on Thursday 1st November at 8pm on BBC One
