GRADUATES AND students across the South West face the litmus test of gruelling challenges, in a new Team Challenge event.
The five hour long event is to be held on 12 October in Bruton, Somerset, designed by not for profit educational organisation Mill on the Brue to develop command, control and delegation skills.
Ten teams of 10 will compete, with applications invited from companies on a first come basis.
Each team can include a maximum of six graduates, sponsoring four students drawn from Bristol, Bath, Exeter and Plymouth universities.
'The event will have an ethos of fun, but will most definitely be challenging, ' said Hyder engineer and event organiser, Marie Murphy. Tasks will not be revealed until the day itself, though obstacle courses and high rope traverses are typical of what can be expected.
Teamwork is a major factor.
'It will not just be an excuse for a bit of craic, though, ' added Murphy. 'Graduate competitors will earn valuable Continuing Professional Development points.'
