Enter the Apprentice 2018


Challenge your Year 6 pupils to design a 'Safety in the Sun' advertising campaign for Manchester Airport's 2018 summer season!

The competition is designed for you to use in your classroom in the summer term, as we know you will all be working hard during SATS examinations.


Complementing the competition, we have designed a free lesson pack including 7 lesson plans, a student workbook and a series of videos (available below).


Your pupils will present their campaign to our industry specialists at Manchester Airport.


 The winning campaign will be displayed across all 3 terminals and will win their whole school a performance and skills session from Circus Sensible in their big top tent!

The winning group will also visit HeartFM to record their advert and hear it live on the radio!
