Topical world issues were the main item of the agenda when Ashton Sixth Form College students visited Priestley College for their model UN conference. The debate focused on the Russia and Ukraine conflict, Palestine and religious freedoms. XL coordinator Karen Kennedy said: "It was a great opportunity for our students to meet with their peers from Priestley and debate some really topical issues."
Representatives from the award winning MyKindaCrowd recently visited college to ask students “What will you do after sixth form?” and explore post college options. MyKindaCrowd provides industry and business linked challenges which offer students the opportunity to engage with industry leading organisations and gain valuable project experience. Simon Bates from MyKindaCrowd talked to students about University and the other options available after college such as higher apprenticeships as well as moving into full time work. The session worked towards students collaborating to create a rap about their future and their thoughts on University life, before performing their verse for the audience.
