We sponsor a number of young people each year to take part in experiences and competitions run locally, regionally and Nationally. These are fun and rewarding with opportunities to make new friends and share experiences with like-minded girls and boys.
We can also provide access to industry professionals for informal career chats, so you can ask questions that may help you when deciding whether certain types of work might suit you.
The opportunities are shown briefly below: then use the enquiry form on this web page to tell us what you would be interested in and we will provide further information for you at the right time. WE MAY NOT RUN EVENTS LOCALLY IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH ENTRANTS. WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT CHOICES ARE AVAILABLE.
