year's winner of the BBC series, The Apprentice, is TrustATrader
registered Joseph Valente. 25 year old Joseph's plumbing business,
Impra-Gas Plumbing and Heating, has been registered on TrustATrader

outstanding levels of service and ambitions for the future of his
plumbing business drove him into entering this year's competition, in
which renowned entrepreneur Lord Alan Sugar puts candidates through
rigorous challenges in order to select a winner. Joseph's performance
throughout the challenges and his robust business plan to franchise out
his plumbing business resulted in his overall victory despite stiff
competition. As well as the accolade of being named Apprentice 2015,
Joseph has won Lord Sugar's partnership and a £250,000 investment.
Sugar said of Joseph’s victory: "Joseph is a great example of what's
possible. He turned his life around and decided he was going to go to
work and here he is today, a well-deserved winner of The Apprentice and I
look forward to him being my business partner. I hope it inspires a lot
of people to see what is possible in this world."
Since a young
age, Joseph has always worked hard to strive for excellence. He gained a
plumbing apprenticeship, which led to him establishing his own
business. It is his intention to give others like him the opportunity to
succeed by making apprenticeships an integral element of his new
business model: "Apprenticeships are going to be the backbone of this
country, and off the back of this journey I'm going to make sure I go
out and promote as much as possible how effective apprenticeships are."
