Raising Aspirations Conference

UWE Exhibition Conference Centre | Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th January 2019

Now in its 7th year, Raising Aspirations is Bristol’s premier school careers event for thirteen and fourteen year old students.

Professionals from industry and education come together to offer inspiring talks, workshops and engaging activities to bring the world of work and education together.  Areas of focus include:

  • Local universities delivering information about courses and qualifications
  • Local businesses giving practical advice on routes into employment/careers
  • Further education and training providers offering information and advice
  • Employability skills including apprenticeships/traineeships

Year 9 is a critical point for our young people as it is the time they must start to make serious decisions about who they would like to be, what they want to achieve in their lives and what they need to do to get there. This conference is all about raising students’ aspirations and raising awareness of the opportunities that are open to them at this exciting stage.

If you would like to run a workshop or have a stand in our Market Place, contact the Raising Aspirations team or register via eventbrite. Attendance is free of charge.
