The national Student Voice will be a tool for the students of OAT academies to have their say on the issues that affect them, their schools and their communities. Their first task will be to implement a national OAT wide #iwill Social Action Project for all OAT academies will take part in over the next academic year.
Well done everyone – we know you’ll do great things!
The amazing #will work taking place in our academies is the result of Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) securing £2 million of funding from the #iwill fund and national charity Ormiston Trust to help young people become involved in youth social action. For more on the #iwillfund click here.
