Young Persons’ Forum

Teachers and careers advisers from the Greater Manchester area can encourage pupils to get involved in our Young Persons' Forum.

Consisting of a group of local young people from Years 10 to 13, our Forum engages participants in our recruitment and outreach activities, while simultaneously hearing views and opinions on our activities, making us more responsive to the needs of young people. 

Benefits of joining the Young Persons’ Forum 

Joining our Forum has been a really positive experience for the young people involved. 

Members get experience of developing their thoughts and arguments, and gain confidence in their own views and opinions. They have the opportunity to develop a range of new skills, or build on those they already have, in areas such as teamwork, presentation skills and communication skills. 

We also encourage members to mention the Forum on their CV or UCAS application form.
