posted on

Two stars who faced Sir Alan Sugar in previous series of The Apprentice visited Burnley College Sixth Form Centre to pass on top tips and great advice to students and Themis Apprentices as part of another successful Student Development Day.

Camilla Ainsworth, runner-up in the popular TV series last year, with her innovative nut milk product, joined Adam Corbally, a regular visitor to College over recent years who has been inspiring students to embrace the challenges they face through life and reach for the stars.

The inspirational sessions run by The Apprentice stars were among the highlights of the latest Student Development Day staged at the College to help students and Themis Apprentices learn the vital skills they will need when entering the jobs market or applying for degree-level study at some of the UK's leading universities. Students picked a packed programme of activities that challenged and informed them in equal measure and enjoyed fun activities and al fresco food during their well-earned lunch break.
