Children and businesses across Norfolk are being urged to take part in national Takeover Day – an event that puts young people in charge.
Norfolk County Council is calling on the county to get behind its young people by signing up to the Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Day and putting the power in young people’s hands.
The event, which takes place on November 22, will give young people the chance to lead to council for the day – working in the role of Acting Managing Director; Chief Fire Officer and Director of Children’s Services, as well as taking on the role of Cabinet Member for Safeguarding.
Norwich International Airport, KLM UK Engineering, the Norwich Clinical Commissioning Group and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office are also taking part.
The event gives young people aged 13 to 19 the chance to experience the world of work, understand how decisions are made and learn skills that are vital for the workplace.
The county council wants young people who are interested in taking over the council to get in touch.
Young people can apply to take part by visiting www.norfolk.gov.uk/takeoverday.
Businesses that want to be involved can contact Chris Williams, Senior Consultation and Involvement Officer, on 01603 495107 or chris.williams2@norfolk.gov.uk
More information about the national campaign is available at www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/takeover_day
