Yarm Apprentices Record Craft Tutorial for 7-11 Year Olds

Two teams of Lower Sixth Form students have created craft tutorials for 7-11 year olds in a bid to make it through to the final task of Yarm Apprentice.

As part of the School’s Yarm Apprentice competition, two teams of nine went head-to-head in the penultimate challenge: creating and filming a tutorial of up to seven minutes long, showing 7-11 year olds how to complete a crafting challenge. The competing students had to think about the safety of the viewers, consider adult supervision and use items that were easy to find around the house, recycled and/or natural resources.

The winning team, led by Project Manager Abhinav, created a video reminiscent of Blue Peter with an engaging tutorial on how to create paper planes, pasta jewellery and party poppers. Please enjoy their finished video below:

Miss Rhodes launched Yarm’s version of the BBC’s The Apprentice nine years ago, inviting budding business professionals within the Lower Sixth to battle it out in a series of challenges in the hopes of walking away with the title of Yarm Apprentice.

As well as providing invaluable hands-on business experience, developing individual leadership traits and strengthening teamwork skills, the competition provides students with opportunities to give back to the local community. In previous years, contestants have written books for EYFS children, partnered with local businesses to support causes like The Halo Project and King’s Church Darlington food bank, and raised money for local and national charities including Breast Cancer Now, MacMillan Cancer Support, Alzheimers UK, Footsteps and Zoe’s Place.
