The SSAT Aspirations Show 2018 will give young people the chance to feel they have control over their own futures through exploring their potential future pathways. The day will give your students an opportunity to engage with people from different industries and learn about the challenges faced and methods to overcome them.

Your students will hear speaker sessions and interactive workshops throughout the day, and after the show they will receive an SSAT student passport enabling them to record a huge range of life experiences beyond the academic.

This new one-day event draws from the same six key themes as SSAT student passports:

  1. Mastering a subject
  2. Appreciating culture
  3. Unleashing creativity
  4. Utilising technology
  5. Thinking like an entrepreneur
  6. Leading change

This event is suitable for Year 9 and especially Year 10 students. It may be particularly helpful to those who may be:

  • lacking in confidence or aspiration
  • abler students or with higher prior attainment, but are currently or potentially may underachieve
  • eligible for pupil premium funding or disadvantaged.
Inspirational speaker sessions
Hear from a range of chief executives, directors and other business leaders who will deliver inspirational sessions built on the key themes of student aspiration.
How to succeed when faced with challenge
What are the challenges of being a young CEO? What is the journey like? The speaker will share their thoughts and advice, focusing on the importance of millennials having the opportunities to succeed.
Effectively coping under pressure
How can we be best prepared for the future and those significant moments in our lives? This session will explore how young people can use different strategies to cope with different kinds of pressure.
Staying motivated
How do you stay motivated? What happens when something doesn’t go to plan? This session will focus on building and maintaining aspirations for the future.
Interactive workshops
Get involved in one-hour workshops blending together engaging discussion topics and hands-on activities. Your students can choose two from a range of sessions giving them a flavour of what it’s like to have a career in different industries.

The SSAT Aspirations Show 2018 will help your students to feel newly inspired, set their goals and be supported to fulfil those goals. Express your interest in booking places for your students and their teachers to find out more.
