First News Takeover Challenge 2018

The 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 last two years alone, nearly 100,000 children have taken part – stepping 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.

From this year, First News Newspaper, are leading the way in supporting schools and others to take part in Takeover and create real and lasting opportunities.

Whilst Takeover Challenge  happens in many ways and at many times, this year’s #TakeoverChallenge Day is on Friday 23 November 2018 , support materials and advice to kick start your own Takeover Challenge can be found below:-
