Could you avoid being fired? (TV opportunity for UK teens) Answered

Sir Alan Sugar is to put a group of 10 teenagers through their paces in a youth version of The Apprentice, the BBC has announced.

Junior Apprentice will feature five girls and five boys aged 16 and 17, who will be set a variety of business tasks to test their entrepreneurial skills.

The winner will win a prize worth up to 25,000GBP* and tailored to his or her individual career prospects.

The set-up is very much like the original version - losing teams end up in the board room, and one member gets fired.

You don't need to have business experience, you don't need to be an academic high-flyer, you just need the will, aptitude and the sheer gumption to go for it.

Apply via the BBC website.

"Adult" Apprentice website.

I would think the only way to be fired is to make equipment that only YOU could fix, making replacing you the company's worst idea.

Why does the site still play Billy Suggers with the sterling sign?

Along with the Yen, cent and Peseta symbol, and the greek alphabet, accented roman characters and lines/boxes, it's in the magical second half of the ASCII set (what I like to call the "boite diabolique") which the site seems not to like.

Alt+0176 is a perfectly valid code for the degree symbol, which I use in ASCII text quite a lot, but you can't put it in comments. I can't have the e-acute that's meant to be in my surname either (if I ever actually put my real name on the site, that is :P)
