At BCITO, our primary goal is to support each of our apprentices on their journey to success. To help achieve this goal, we've assembled a group of 15 exceptional apprentices who collaborate with us across various industry sectors. These remarkable individuals are known as Apprentice Leaders, and together they form the Apprentice Leadership Group.

Today, we're thrilled to share the journey of Kurt Barnes, one of our Exterior Plastering apprentices, during his experience at the Outward Bound Course.

Among the highlights of the experience, the most significant for Kurt was the opportunity to spend quality time with his team, building bonds and connections.

Through the experience, Kurt also found he developed “much more motivation and work ethic towards everything. It's not like a boot camp, but it certainly feels like one. It challenges your mental strength" and pushes you.

Kurt's journey at Outward Bound embodies the essence of the programme, where personal growth, teamwork, and testing one's mental resilience are celebrated. We're proud to have Apprentice Leaders like Kurt, who wholeheartedly embrace the opportunity for personal development and are eager to share their transformative experiences with others.
