The Takeover Challenge is a fun, exciting and engaging national project which sees organisations across the country open their doors to children and young people. It puts young people in decision-making positions and encourages organisations and businesses to hear their views.
For this year’s Takeover Challenge on Friday 18 November 2016, Surrey County Council is inviting children and young people aged 11-18 years (up to 25 with SEND – special educational needs or disabilities) to get involved in a variety of activities and workshops to share their ideas and help make decisions.
Some of the activities and workshops young people will have an opportunity to take part in include:
- Help shape the future direction of Surrey’s approach to apprenticeships.
- Work with the communications team to learn about what they do and how it works.
- Share experiences and views with Surrey’s senior leaders.
- Help shape the future of a children and young people’s website.
There will be lots of opportunities throughout the day for young people to get involved and gain insight into the work the council does, as well as getting their voice heard.
Places are limited and booking closes on 4 November so please visit the site below for further information and to book a space.
Please note that this event takes place during term time and will require your child to be absent from their school/college. When booking a space, please ensure that the school/college is aware of this.
