Fifty young people aged between 16 and 18 will be selected from across the West Midlands (Birmingham & the Black Country, Shropshire, Worcester, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire).
We will use a ‘stratified random’ process which randomly selects participants from different groupings based on their location, ethnicity and gender to ensure that the attendees are representative of the West Midlands as a whole. If you’d like to find out more about the selection process please click here.
There will be an opportunity to reclaim your travel expenses for your journey to and from the Birmingham Midlands Institute.
