Students visit NTU
Tupton Hall students visited Nottingham Trent University.
The focus of the event was to develop pupil awareness of themselves as leaders and to enable them to use their leadership skills to make effective change in their communities. They heard from some fantastic leaders such as Rugby World Cup winner and Sportswoman of the year Maggie Alphonsi and Will Hussey from The Art of Brilliance.
The theme of the conference was based around the UN Sustainability Goals. Pupils who attended also had a tour round Nottingham Trent University campus, bespoke leadership training and access workshops from specialists based on the four themes below:
- No Poverty
- Climate Action
- Quality Education
- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
Beyond the event and throughout the academic year pupils will work together to develop a whole school initiative that will seek to address one of the four focus areas. Each school that presents back on their initiative at the end of the year will receive an Inspiring Leaders - Leadership Certificate and the best presentations will receive funding to continue and develop that project for the following academic year.
