Brent Takeover Day
The purpose of the event is to have young people take over organisations for the day and learn about the world of work. Takeover Day puts children and young people into real-life decision-making positions in organisations. Every young person has the right to have a say in the decisions that affect them, and Takeover Challenge encourages them to exercise that right.
This year’s challenge will focus on young people designing the children and young people consultation process for the Brent Youth Strategy. We are aiming to hear from thousands of young people; however, we know we cannot do this without young people shaping the engagement approach. Alongside learning about local democracy and how it impacts on their lives, participants will be designing how we consult with young people and key messaging. Following the Takeover Day, we would encourage involved students to feedback to the whole school to encourage wider engagement in the Brent Youth Strategy.
