Raising Aspirations through partnerships
Every year NBA host a ‘Raising Aspirations Day’ for all Year 9 students. This event takes place prior to the Year 9 ‘Options Evening’ and is designed to help students understand what qualifications and courses they will need depending on their future aspirations. Employers and businesses from a wide range of local, national and international companies are invited to the event to discuss their organisation with students and the path they will need to take to pursue a career in that sector. In 2015 the Academy were delighted to welcome representatives from many large businesses discussing their positions and how they achieved success.
We would like to thank all our business partners for supporting this event and we look forward to welcoming them back next year to inspire even more of our enthusiastic students.
“The event was a real pleasure to be a part of. It’s such an important time for students, as they make their GCSE choice. Hopefully the day has given them some invaluable advice on possible future careers and inspired them to work hard to get their dream job.”
