On Friday 21st November 2014 students from local schools and colleges visited NTU to ‘takeover’ for the day. The day was organised as part of the national Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Day which runs every year and sees over 200 organisations across the country open their doors to young people, who are given the opportunity to try some work experience in a department of their choice and learn more about employability skills. 

At NTU students chose to work in a number of areas including Forensics, Psychology, Human Resources, Sports and the Students’ Union. 


Jessica Boateng, took over the Vice Chancellor's office on Takeover day, check out the video to see what happened!
