  2. 2. www.emerge-leadership.com Errol Lawson 28 January 2016 Youth Leadership Aston Manor Academy Between November and January 2016 Year five 12 and five Year 13 students from Aston Manor Academy in Birmingham, UK participated in an Emerge Leadership ‘Youth Leadership Programme’ as part of the schools enrichment activity for students. The leadership programme is intentionally set at the standard that students might expect to experience in their first or second year of Uni. The aim of the programme was for the students to develop their soft skills whilst providing them with an experience that will build their confidence and prepare them for life after 6th form whether they choose to go to university or into the world of work. Through our partnership with KPMG students had the unique opportunity to to hold some of the sessions in their new offices at 1 Snowhill in Birmingham City centre. Students worked in two separate teams on a ‘leadership venture’ during the course of the programme. Their brief was “This is an opportunity to do what you've always meant to do but never found time for. An opportunity to bring a fresh approach to a problem you see in your community, your country, the world. To be daring. To be bold. To take some risks.” Youth Leadership Aston Manor, Page 2 Students working on their leadership projects at KMPG offices in Birmingham
  3. 3. www.emerge-leadership.com Errol Lawson 28 January 2016 They came up with their own venture idea focussing around a need or a cause that was personal to them. During the course of the 6 week programme students had the opportunity to meet some of Birmingham’s business leaders and politicians and hear their stories and receive advice as to how they could develop their leadership venture ideas. At the end of the program students presented their final venture ideas to Councillor Kerry Jenkins, the Youth Champion for Birmingham City Council. The guest speakers included: Councillor Wasim Zaffar Justice Williams MBE Councillor Sharon Thompson Rachel Toussaint (Solicitor) Councillor Kerry Jenkins Youth Leadership Aston Manor, Page 3 Students with Director of Emerge Leadership Errol Lawson and Birmingham’s Youth Champion Councillor Kerry Jenkins
