The NKDC Apprenticeship scheme, recycling plastics and keeping healthy were hot topics at the May 10th Youth Council meeting hosted by North Kesteven Academy.
The Youth Council assisted the apprentices with their Youth Engagement and Employment project by completing a survey. The findings from the survey will be reported back to the NKDC Executive Board at the end of May.
NKDC Health trainer Debbie Chessum gave an interesting talk, which gave the group an opportunity to find out about her role, and how they could assist with health issues facing young people today.
Following an interest in Sustainablilty at previous meetings, Tamara Walters from NKDC took the opportunity to discuss the current topic of plastics and land fill waste, and how the group could assist in reducing this waste. Keen interest was shown in the app Refil.org.uk and how this can be widely promoted.
The discussion also lent itself to the ongoing Rainworks project, which is reaching out to Primary Schools following its success in Secondary schools last year, and the NK Fest -let your talent shine – An opportunity to recognise the talent in NK. To find out more visit www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/nkFest
