Lancaster in June: it’s the 2015 Young England and Wales Programme

Lancaster in June will again set the scene for this major event in the Young UK and Ireland Programme calendar. Delegates from the public sector, professional bodies and other organisations will gather together for four days of lively discussion, engaging group work and fascinating speakers unfolding their life stories.

Developing communication skills, inspiring confidence and broadening horizons are top of the agenda, as always in this hugely enjoyable event.

Next month: the 2015 Young Local Authority of the Year

Teams of two in local authorities across the country – from Aberdeen in the north to Weymouth in the south – are busy preparing for this exciting and challenging annual event. Twenty-eight pairs will compete in February to take the coveted title from the last year’s winners, Wiltshire Council. 

This will be the 10th annual staging of the competition which has at its heart the aim of  encouraging the professional development of people in the early years of their local government careers – irrespective of age. It’s challenging, it’s rewarding, and it’s hugely enjoyable. As one of last year’s delegates put it: ‘Thanks for a great few days. It was a brilliant experience’.

Details of who’s who to follow…
