More than 100 university students are set to take part in a leadership training programme following its success last year.
The Citizens UK Leadership Academy will be held in October and November with the University of East London’s (UEL) School of Education and Communities.
Students will be trained in advocacy action, leadership development, power analysis and other key community organising tools.
They will also hear real examples and inspirational stories from people who are changing their communities.
Students will also mark UEL’s 10-year commitment to paying the real living wage.
Citizens UK, the organisation behind the living wage campaign, will teach students about everyday leadership.
Students will meet community leaders who have led the campaign and have the opportunity to volunteer locally to put the skills they have learned into practice.
