The apprentices for The Insurance Apprentice 2020 have been chosen… and we have some seriously exciting news to share with you!
In a surprising twist of events, the judges have revealed that we will not only have eight apprentices, but a ninth contestant added to the mix, which is the people’s choice candidate, Kanchaal Mahabeer. Her social media campaign, and the way she promoted herself, as well as the industry as a whole, is something we have not seen before… this helped her to get double the votes than what any of the other competitors could get, and that is why she is the people’s choice candidate.
The sixth series will see the nine apprentices competing against each other in an intense learning experience, to be crowned winner of The Insurance Apprentice 2020 and walk away with fantastic prizes.
The winner of The Insurance Apprentice wins a trip to Lloyds of London, sponsored by Lloyds of London, a R75 000 bursary, sponsored by Inseta, a R20 000 cash prize, sponsored by the Graduate Institute of Financial Sciences (GIFS), a R10 000 cash prize, sponsored by Tracker, a tech prize sponsored by Innosys, another tech type prize, sponsored by Genasys Technologies, and so much more! The runner up wins a bursary from GIFS worth R27 500 and a prize sponsored by CIB. Third place will also receive a bursary from GIFS worth R27 500. Each of the nine apprentices will also receive a R1 000 Uber voucher, sponsored by Discovery Insure.
