The Takeover Challenge 2017 

Would you like to Take Over for the Day! Lots of senior management jobs up for grabs and you get to make all the decisions!  Why don't you get involved and give it a go!

The aim of the Challenge is to develop young peoples involvement in organisations' work for an whole day - taking over the jobs of staff members within Blackpool Council. The more children and young people are involved in an organisations' work, the more successful their Takeover Challenge will be. 


The Takeover Challenge is all about recognising children and young people's hard work; so it doesn't have to stop after a single day. If you help design a project or work on something which may take a while to finish - you could be invited back to be involved in the future.

Takeover Day will be happening in November 2017 but we will update this space once we have a confirmed date.

If you are a young person who gets involved, why not see whether you can follow up with your Takeover Challenge and learn the outcome of your work. 

Find out more information about the Takeover Challenge here. 

If you'd like to be involved in Blackpool Council's Takeover Challenge - contact Kirsty Fisher to find out more.
