Mercury promotes opportunities at Generation Apprenticeship
Mercury attended Generation Apprenticeship on Thursday, 26th of September 2019 at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium to promoting its apprenticeship programmes.
Now in its third year, the Generation Apprenticeship competition celebrates the best teamwork, leadership, creativity and problem-solving skills of Ireland’s apprentices.
The competition has two categories in Year 3 to showcase skills across the full spectrum of apprenticeship programmes. In Category, 1, teams of apprentices are challenged to use the materials, equipment and tools of their industry to design and produce a 6-foot, 3-dimensional A letter that is based on the Generation Apprenticeship brand. In Category 2, teams of apprentices use the base of a standard three-dimensional A ‘backdrop’ to represent their industry in creative and visual ways. The competition is open to all apprentices working across Ireland.
