UpRising in Stoke-on-Trent

This is our first year running UpRising in Stoke-on-Trent, so what better time to get involved if you live in the area. 

We currently are running the following programmes in Stoke-on-Trent; 


UpRising Leadership Programme 

The UpRising Leadership Programme applications have now closed! 

Recruitment opened on 15 August 2016 and your last chance to apply for the programme in Stoke-on-Trent will be 13 January 2017.

Assessment centres will take place at the end of January 2017 and the programme will begin at the end of that month. 

The UpRising core leadership programme is our flagship programme. It is a nine month programme, involving ‘access behind the scenes’ sessions with some of the UK’s most senior leaders. The core programme offers participants a unique first-hand view of the way that political, business, public sector and community organisations work together to shape our communities. Each participant is individually matched with a coach and a mentor who supports them on a one to one basis throughout their time on the programme.

All participants work with other UpRisers to design and deliver a social action campaign on a local issue they are passionate about. As well as forming networks with senior figures, participants also build strong networks amongst their peers on the programme.

Through this programme we equip young people with the knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to reach their leadership potential and take social action on issues they care about.

Most sessions and workshops take place in the evening so that the programme can be fitted around work, study and other commitments.
