We have two Young England and Wales Programmes coming up – in April and June. Booking for the April course is open now. Click here for brochure and booking form. But before then, the Young Local Authority of the Year 2018 – now fully booked – will be staged in Lancaster in February. Thirty-eight teams from local authorities, large and small, across the country will meet for two days of exciting competition. Details to follow.

The title Scotland Young Thinker of the Year 2017-18 (which will be shared with the winner of the January 2018 event) went to Rebecca MacDonald of Highland and Islands Enterprise on the final evening of the November programme. Her superb paper on North Korea was described as 'richly informative, impeccably researched, using excellent references, current and historical, to illuminate the nature of the regime, the futility of sanctions, and the need for dialogue... confidently delivered, this was a presentation of quite exceptional authority and maturity.'
