Dear Parent/ Carer,
I am delighted to invite you and your child to the first ever Sheffield Park Academy Aspiration Day. The event will be held on Saturday 14th March 2015 from 10am until 1.00pm at the Academy.
As part of our programme of ensuring that our students receive the best start in life we are always mindful of their learning journey, aspirations for college, university and employment. However, we are also well aware that at such an early stage in their development that they may not be sure what opportunities are open to them and what they have to do to get there.
Aspiration Day will be an opportunity for you and your child to discuss pathways into different industries and sectors and the types of roles that may be available.
On the day we will have various employers from a number of different sectors including:
· Financial and banking
· High tech and precision engineering
From the educational sector we will be joined by:
· The University of Sheffield
· Sheffield Hallam University
· Oxford University
· Oriel College
Representation from the faculties of, dentistry, medicine, midwifery and nursing and science and technology will be on hand to give advice about how to access courses and the types of roles that they can link to.
In addition we have a number of organisations attending to support students through the process of applying for university and apprenticeships such as the Rotary Club of Sheffield and the Sheffield Students Union.
The event will be a fantastic opportunity to talk to people within the academic and business world and I look forward to welcoming you to the Academy on the 14th March.
Mr C. Dillon
