Apprentice winner to talk to Suffolk students

THE value of apprenticeships will be what Lord Sugar’s former apprentice, Lee McQueen, will be talking about when he visits Otley College next month.

The winner of the 2008 series of BBC TV’s flagship show The Apprentice, who is remembered for his catchphrase: ‘That’s what I’m talking about’, will be stressing the value of apprenticeships in the workplace when he addresses students and the business community at the event.

Mr McQueen, who worked for Lord Sugar for two years, has now left the ‘Sir Alan’ empire and has set up his own business called the Raw Talent Agency.

He will be at the college on Tuesday, November 2, from 4pm for the event, which coincides with the new series of The Apprentice. It is the second Momentous Apprentice event to take place at the college. Last year, Claire Young, who came second to Lee, also attended an event at Otley.

College spokesperson John Nice said they were looking forward to welcoming Mr McQueen.
