The top four reasons to apply according to Harrow College students last year were:

  1. Be interviewed with in-depth feedback (perfect practice for job interviews or university applications)
  2. Attend an Audition Day where you complete business tasks in teams (just like The Apprentice TV show)
  3. The winners from the Audition Day will secure a place on an 8-stage coaching course with Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen
  4. Paid internships available

Apply now to secure your place at the Audition Day being held in the Enterprise Centre on the 19th October 2016!


We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated students who are looking to gain skills and knowledge other college students would only dream of being able to gain! These skills will not only help you during your course at college but also when applying for a job or for university.

The Application Process and Academy

Once you have applied, one of our recruitment consultants will review your application and be in contact for a short telephone interview.

For students who sign up to the Employability Academy, you will be automatically entered into the weekly prize draw of 2 cinema tickets!

Following the interview stage, we will invite up to 50 students to attend an Audition Day (you can find out more about the Audition Day on the right of this page) which will again take place at Harrow College.
