Imagine Your Future Careers Fair 2018

28 March 2018

Ashton Sixth Form College's annual careers fair returned for the sixth year. Imagine Your Future is a careers fair aimed at college students who are beginning to think about their futures after college. 

The event brought together exhibitors from across the UK and beyond, including 40 universities, 8 apprenticeship providers and 20 employers. 

Careers Advisors from Ashton Sixth Form College were also at the event to offer advice and guidance, as well as informing current students of their options and opportunities with the Careers Team throughout the year.

The breadth of exhibitors was outstanding, giving students a wide range of options to explore. The event catered for all progression opportunities and allowed students to think about the incredible pathways they could embark on, after completing their studies at the college. The event also welcomed high school students from the Tameside borough who wanted to find out more and get a head start. 

Universities from across Europe travelled to the college to attend Imagine Your Future. In attendance were over 40 universities, including the University of Manchester, MMU, BIMM, LIPA, the University of Hull, the University of Huddersfield, and Salford University. Further afield universities included the University of Sunderland, Falmouth University, Wrexham Glyndŵr University, the University of Dundee and the Institute of Performing Arts Barcelona. 

Employers included Google, Barclays, the RAF, the Army, the Navy, New Charter and Ernst and Young.

As well as universities and employers, apprenticeship providers included the Apprentice Academy, MMU and Salford University Degree Apprenticeships, Seetec and QA.

Each year, Imagine Your Future goes from strength to strength and extremely valuable to each student that attends. For those who know exactly the route they wish to take, students can ask specific questions and begin to make decisions. Students who are unsure of their destination are able to gain an overview of what is on offer and begin to think clearly about the pathway they may wish to take.

Imagine Your Future is organised by the Careers and Guidance Team at Ashton Sixth Form College. Click here to find out more.
