The National Youth Takeover Challenge puts children and young people into real-life decision-making positions in organisations. Children gain a valuable insight and gain experience of a workplace, while organisations benefit from a fresh perspective on their work.
In the last two years alone, nearly 100,000 children have taken part. They’ve stepped into the shoes of a wide range of adult jobs, including everything from MPs, mayors, TV presenters and teachers, to chief executives, business leaders and government officials.
In Sandwell we have the gold award for takeover challenges and want to keep this up by encouraging more young people every year to take part in individual and board takeovers.
