Prime employee enters World Skills Business Challenge

We received great news last week when employee, Laura Booth, Business Services Assistant, was accepted for the World Skills UK ‘Apprentice Business Challenge 2013’.

Laura joined Prime in 2011 and has successfully completed levels 2 and 3 of her Association Accounting Technicians qualification and will complete Level 4 in July 2013. She currently works within our Virtual Accountancy Team where she fulfils the role of bookkeeper for a number of clients using cloud technology.

The competition, part of the WorldSkills UK portfolio of competitions, is an exciting interactive business game that will enable apprentices to compete against each other to be crowned the 2013 Apprentice Business Challenge champions.

Taking on the role of business advisers, apprentices will compete in teams at one of three regional heats held in Leeds, Birmingham and London. The teams will be made up of a mix of apprentices from across the different apprenticeship frameworks, organisations and industry sectors, providing a unique learning and development experience.

Teams will work through a case study detailing a real-life business issue. They will then be required to analyse the information, propose a solution and present their recommendations to a judging panel in the form of a presentation and written report.

Laura was successful in her application and will be competing in the Birmingham heat on the 22nd May 2013.

From everyone at Prime, we would like to take this opportunity to wish Laura all the best for her upcoming competition.
