The Changemaker Award will develop the children’s literacy, team work, collaboration, listening and communication skills due to the need for them to work together to plan, develop, deliver and reflect on their projects.

The Changemaker Award is open to target Widening Participation primary schools only, due the capacity of the team.

  • The Changemaker Student Award

    The Changemaker Student Award is designed for self-selecting children who would like to make positive change in their school and beyond. Fuelled by the University’s commitment to creating positive social change the Changemaker Student Award supports children to become socially responsible and innovative.

    The Award will be launched with a school assembly, delivered by one of our Changemaker Ambassadors, who will introduce the ethos of Changemaking and inspire your children to get involved, resulting in a self-nominated Changemaker Team who will work with the Changemaker Ambassador to explore projects to take forward.

    They are also on hand to support any projects that your children decide they would like to pursue. With the support of a member of your school staff the Changemaker Student Award can be achieved during a school year and have a real impact on your school community and the personal development of children involved.

    In previous year’s there have been projects focussed on enhancing well-being in the school community, campaigning for recycling in the local area and supporting national charities.
