  • Need


    Counteracting the negative stereotyping of Young People in the media by giving Young People an opportunity to make a change in their community and to grow in leadership.


    We believe the VLE will enable more schools and providers to get involved and will allow us to support them more effectively.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Engage a web design company to create a VLE for the Young Leaders Awards


    » Put the brief out to tender
    » Select an appropriate agency to deliver the project

    Success will be finding a design company who fit with our ethos and are prepared to deliver a first class project within a tight budget

    Aim 2

    To write the VLE


    » To dedicate a team to developing an interactive VLE which will inspire young people

    Success will be taking our existing amazing materials and transforming them for the VLE

    Aim 3

    Pilot the new VLE with a number of schools and providers


    » Recruit Pilot Schools
    » Trial the new system
    » Review the new system

    Success will be recruiting 3 schools or providers for each Award (there are 4)

    Aim 4

    Make the VLE live!


    » Go live with the new, fantastic VLE

    Success will be seeing the VLE go live with all of our schools
