A busy start to Aspire to be...18.11.2016
Aspire to Be is a programme run over lunchtime aiming to give students a wider insight into the types of career paths available.
Aspire to Be a Dancer
On Friday 7th October a dancer who had worked internationally came to the academy to share the reality of what it's like to be a professional dancer. She has worked all over the world and had some fantastic stories to tell the students. The students really engaged well during the session and it gave them a better insight into this profession.
Aspire to Be a University Student
On October 14th a Chemistry PHD Student, Jet, came in to the academy from Liverpool University to chat to the students about what it's like to be a student and what courses you can study. This was a great session for the students to learn more about university life.
Aspire to Be a Psychologist
On Thursday 3rd November a Sports Psychologist come into the academy and spoke firstly to our BETC Year 13 students then at our Aspire to Be session at lunchtime. Zoe is a Lecturer at John Moores University specialising in Sports Psychology. Within her role she deals a lot with applications for students who are considering this as a career so it was really beneficial to have come in and share her own experiences as well as informing students about the next steps to take in becoming a Sports Psychologist.
