Middlesbrough's BIG TAKEOVER- what you need to know

Are you looking for more information about our BIG TAKEOVER? You’ve come to the right place!

On the week starting 22nd November, 50 young people aged from 13-18 (and up to 25 if they have SEND or are a care leaver) will be taking over from senior officers in Middlesbrough Council! Senior officers will think of a challenge they have, and young people will help them with this.

If you are a young person and think this would be a great opportunity to improve skills and get valuable work experience, but feel a bit nervous, don’t worry! You will receive a free accredited Confidence and Leadership workshop, which will give you the boost you need to go in, be confident, and show them who’s boss! You will be working 3 half days during the week, and will be working closely with the senior officer and their team. So what are you waiting for? Sign up here!

If you are a head of service in Middlesbrough Council, you can sign up here! You can email or for more information about your challenge! No matter which part of the council you come from, we want to hear from you!

If you have any questions at all, please email Get signing up people!
