Aspiration Day

18th April 2016

Following the huge success of last year's event Sheffield Park Academy will be holding their second annual 'Aspiration Day' on Saturday 14th May 2016.

Last year saw over 300 students and parents attend the event and this year's event looks set to be even bigger. We are now working in partnership with 3 other United Learning Academies from Barnsley, Leeds and Springs in Sheffield. Aspiration Day this year will be the culmination of a programme of work to raise not only aspiration but the cultural capital of students within United Learning in Yorkshire. This year's programme and timings will be similar to last year and will follow the format below. 07:30 - School Opens for Exhibitors 10:00 - School Opens for Students 10:15 - Opening addresses by an educational/ business leader (Master Cutler [TBC], Head Teacher and Chair of Governing body) talking about the value of education and why raising aspiration is so important for all of our students.Student opening (Leo Balli) 10:30 - 13:00 - Space opened up for students to go and visit different stands from different employers in a recruitment type fair. Discussions to be held around - pathways to get into that field of business and University aspirations. We would greatly appreciate your help in recruiting representatives from local/national businesses to attend the event, bringing a stall with information for the recruitment fair aspect of the day. We are happy for exhibitors to run their stands as they see fit with students using the space as a market place and being free to speak to one and all. We would be happy to meet / speak on the phone to discuss the event and any further requirements that you may have. Please contact Sam Christmas - Sam.christmas@scci.org.uk or tel - 0114 201 8918 We hope to attract well over the 300 students and their families that attended the event last year and with your help and support we feel it could be another great success.
