Harry Potter & the Triwizard Tournament for National Apprenticeship Week

Students from 5 local high schools battled for the title of tournament winners in NLTG’s annual Interschool, held 5th – 7th March 2019. NLTG is one of the largest providers of Apprenticeships in the area and this is our 3rd interschool competition, held in celebration of National Apprenticeship Week.

A Harry Potter ‘Triwizard Tournament’ was this year’s theme with students taking up the challenge of creating a themed feast including a ‘Sorting Hat’ creative cake, and an innovative ‘Quidditch Pitch’ display stand.  New to this year, students were also challenged with writing and marketing a new Harry Potter short story.

The Winners of the competition were Oswaldtwistle School who showcased their creative talents and teamworking skills.  They received a school trophy and framed photo collage for the school, with each student receiving an iPad Mini.

Second and Third place went to Accrington Academy and Mount Carmel respectively. Each won Love2Shop vouchers along with a framed collage for the school. Coal Clough Academy and Witton Park Academy were the other two schools in the competition and also received a framed collage.  All students went away on the day with a pack of NLTG information focusing on the real theme of National Apprenticeship Week, Apprenticeships.

Gareth Lindsay, NLTG Managing Director commented, “While allowing students to demonstrate their creativity, team working, planning and communication skills, our competition also allows them to find out about different careers, such as catering, digital marketing and furniture design.  This year’s competition saw some incredible creations and innovative thinking; including students embracing the marketing challenge by messaging JK Rowling directly. Congratulations to go to everyone who took part and to this year’s winners Oswaldtwistle School, who created an inspired feast, display and short story.”
