Calderdale: You’re hired!

Calderdale has a new Calderdale Apprentice. After a search lasting three weeks, Calderdale’s “Lord Sugar”, Craig Hamer, Joint Managing Director of Dews Motor Group, declared Joe Cotton, 15, of Calder High School to be this year’s winner.

On hearing he’d won, Joe said: “I’m chuffed to bits I think, still can’t quite believe it!” Craig, “Lord Sugar” said of his performance: “Throughout the process you demonstrated a great deal of positive skills: creativity, imagination, dedication, leadership and a real flair for finishing touches.” Joe won an Apple iPad.

In the final of The Calderdale Apprentice, held on Wednesday 20 October 2010 on Southgate Precinct in Halifax town centre, 8 students from 6 schools battled it out to take the title.
