What the Young Leaders say...

‘The workshops were useful because I learned about my responsibilities in the different sessions... it was a great work experience opportunity: I had a brilliant time!’ Georgie – Young Leader

‘I really enjoyed seeing the children working together to create a piece of music. However, I found it challenging to engage such a large group of young children to begin with’ Mollie – Young Leader

‘Things I have enjoyed; interacting with members of the public, finding out how a theatre/arts centre works, and meeting new people… highlight of the summer’ Alex – Young Leader

Young Leadership Scheme

As well as our Work Experience programme we also run the Young Leadership Scheme.

The Young Leadership Programme at Norden Farm allows students to gain hands on work experience.

Young Leaders play an important part of the holidays at Norden Farm. Assisting craft and storytelling sessions and front of house activity, working alongside professional arts practitioners and leading an end of week open workshop for local children and families.

Participants in the programme benefit from up to 3 training and mentoring sessions throughout the leadership week.

The programme, which runs throughout the Easter and summer holidays is open to young people, aged 14- 17 years.

Participation in this course can be used toward Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award and DofE Award.

The Young Leadership Programme at Norden Farm is supported by The Spoore, Merry and Rixman Foundation.
