FLIXTON Girls School has hosted its annual Aspirational Futures Day as part of its post-16 advice and guidance programme.

The event attracted twenty organisations including businesses, colleges, universities and national services.

The day provided students with the opportunity to learn more about potential career choices and pathways.

Mrs Bates, Work Related Learning Coordinator and event organiser said: “We aim to provide our students with the resources to make important and valuable career decisions. Students take their first steps toward meaningful employment by meeting with employers face-to-face to exchange information.”

Universities and colleges participating included: The University of Law, Keele, Salford, Myerscough College, Trafford College and the University of Manchester.

NHS Careers Hub sent representatives as did Trafford Social Workers, and the Greater Manchester Police.

Sellafield Ltd, Rolls-Royce plc., Jet2.com, Connexions, Kuits Solicitors, Manchester Airport and Aldi also attended.

Ayda Oryanpour from year 11 commented: “I was really blown away by the whole event; I never realised I had such wide options available from Rolls Royce to Aldi through to NHS and the universities.”
