2018 final eight revealed

It began with 204 applications, 60 went through to the elimination rounds allowing the panel to identify the top 20 and now, the final eight for The Insurance Apprentice 2018 have been chosen.

The top 20 candidates uploaded one minute videos in which they shared their message to the industry and to people outside the industry about why they would be suitable ambassadors for/and within the insurance industry. People watched the videos, choose their favourite contestants and cast their votes. The votes did not determine who the top eight would be but definitely contributed in making the final decision.

Marking our arrival at the final eight, the panelists, after considering all the elements and watching those truly creative one-minute videos, have chosen the final eight applicants who will grace the industry with their presence early next year, on series four of The Insurance Apprentice.

Filming will take place from 7 to 12 January 2018. The series will be aired early 2018 via the FAnews and The Insurance Apprentice websites, YouTube and Facebook. The winner will be announced in April 2018.

The winner of The Insurance Apprentice 2018 will fly to London, in business class, for a week to visit Lloyds of London; the winner will also receive a bursary valued at R75 000 from INSETA and win a cash prize of R20 000 from Masifunde Training Centre. The Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA) is also sponsoring the winner to go to the Insurance Conference at Sun City in July 2018.
