Highland Youth Parliament holds an annual ‘Apprentice Day’ on which members of HYP shadow Senior Managers from Highland’s public sector services, and Highland Council’s Elected Members. Representatives from High Life Highland, The Highland Council, NHS Highland, Police Scotland, Fire and Rescue Service Scotland, UHI, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and HM Prison Service are involved.
Approximately 20 adults and 20 young people take part each year.
• For Service Managers to gauge young people’s views of their service
• For services to become more aware of the Highland Youth Parliament
• To give young people a better understanding of the services provided for them and how services consult with young people.
