The candidates are challenged to set up their own urban gardening business, carrying out a series of commercial and domestic jobs across London. Day one sees both Project Managers visit corporate clients to pitch a plan and secure a price for a large rooftop renovation. The following day, an inability to attach a hose to a tap leads to a sinking feeling for one duo, and a rooftop renovation leaves one corporate team digging an enormous hole for themselves.
The Apprentice sees fourteen candidates, competing against each other for a position at Lord Alan Sugar's company. Each week the candidates take part in a task set by Lord Sugar. Each team will have a Team Leader who managers that group for that task.
The team that performs the best will win a reward and avoid the boardroom. The losing team will be summoned to the boardroom where their team leader will be forced to pick two people in their team who we join them in the boardroom and a chance to be fired.
After twelve weeks Lord Sugar will be left with his Apprentice, who will work for him at a salary of Â£100,000. Lord Sugar is very busy so he has Nick and Karen, who act as his eyes and ears, to inform him of what's going on.
