Junior Leadership Scheme

Being a Student Ambassador has been an incredible experience. It's been fun to work with new people. The work we have done has also been very fulfilling, helping with events that better educate students about university and its alternatives. The thing I have enjoyed the most about being an ambassador is creating my own workshop to present to students about my field of education, games design. It has greatly boosted my confidence as a presenter and has improved my general presentation and organisational skills.

Junior Leadership Scheme

Our award-winning Junior Leadership Scheme offers a complementary educational experience alongside GCSE study for Year 10 and Year 11 secondary school pupils. The scheme ensures young people in receipt of Pupil Premium are equipped with the skills, knowledge and support to make positive decisions about their future.


The scheme aims to build confidence and raise aspirations of the young people involved through providing a structured programme of interactive, fun and informative sessions.


Over the course of the 18-month programme the young people will take part in:

  • Academic tutoring in English, Mathematics and Science geared to supporting pupils to achieve high GCSE grades
  • Workshops to build confidence, team working, presentation and communication skills
  • Activities for individuals to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses and to set targets
  • Workshops to enhance the pupils’ employability portfolio, including interview and networking skills
  • A visit to a local employer to increase awareness of workplace expectations
  • Visits to Leeds Beckett University and other universities in West Yorkshire
  • An opportunity to work closely with our Student Ambassadors
  • Talks from inspirational speakers
  • Enterprise challenges
