In the Know: Children’s Art Week!

Children’s Art Week is held from Wednesday 29th to Tuesday 19th July. The activities give children and young people, together with their teachers, parents, and carers, the opportunity to participate in practical art activities with artists, makers and educators. In this week’s newsletter, we will be sharing three opportunities that will help your child explore and express their creativity! Read on to find out more!

Join The GT Scholars x Brit Insurance Digital Challenge for Young People

Young people in the UK will have a chance to showcase their skills and talents, by taking part in the GT Scholars x Brit Insurance Digital Challenge! These digital challenges have been designed to give pupils a chance to gain online work experience in the insurance industry, a growing field that is offering many opportunities for young people. Pupils will also gain a certificate once they complete all 5 challenges, and there are amazing prizes for challenge finalists and winners! If your child is between the ages of 11-18, please share this link to help get them started.
