What happened in 2014?
Children across England took over adults' jobs on Children's Commissioner's Takeover Day on Friday 21st November 2014.

Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan; Shadow Health Secretary, Andy Burnham; Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe; Julie Bentley, CE of Girl Guiding UK; the Mayor of Sunderland; the Cabinet Office and NHS England are just some of those who decided to take part.
