Join Samuel from The Apprentice at an all day Enterprise bootcamp


Now’s your chance to join Samuel Boateng, Sheffield Hallam graduate and star of BBC One show The Apprentice, to learn how to turn an idea into a viable concept in just one day on Thursday 2nd February. 

Do you think you have what it takes to be the next Hallam Apprentice? Based loosely on the TV show, students will work in groups to compete against each other in an Apprentice style task.

At the end of the day each team will pitch their idea to the panel of experts, including Samuel and a member of staff from CADS (Creative Arts Development Space).

This will be a unique chance to combine your skills with students from other faculties, build upon your professional networks, and challenge yourself to come up with creative solutions.

This will also be a fantastic opportunity to hear from Samuel about his time studying at Hallam, his entrepreneurial journey and his advice for students on the first rungs of the career ladder.

The event is for any student, of any level or course and not just for those looking for a career within business.

To register for this one-off opportunity, search ‘Hallam Apprentice’ on UniHub ( or click here.

Deadline for applications is Tuesday 31st January.
