Careers and Higher Education Fair


The 2022 Aspire Careers and Higher Education Fair took place on Thursday and it was an outstanding success, with over 500 students and parents attending.

The evening was specially designed for all girls from Upper IV (Year 9) and above, whether they knew exactly what their career path would be or were just starting to consider what subjects they wished to pursue at GCSE.

It is the flagship event in our Aspire Careers program. It brought together representatives from a wide range of professions and higher education institutions to offer students the opportunity to gain first-hand information on a wide range of Career and Higher Education study.  

Representative organisations spanning finance and blue chip, medicine and veterinary, sustainable business and the third sector were available to advise the students on the best routes to take to succeed in their chosen area, and the realities of life in that particular field.

We were also fortunate to be joined by a large number of universities who were able to offer guidance on the best courses for students to pursue.

The six Aspire talks were truly inspirational to all those who listened. Talks ranged from A Future in Science, Law, Engineering and Medicine to Careers in The Civil Service, Military and Public Service Industries. 

It was such a pleasure to see The Abbey Community working together with alumnae giving advice to our current students.

Deciding on a career is not something that can be achieved in a single evening, but we very much hope that the 2022 Careers and Higher Education Fair acted as a springboard to inspire many students to start researching the shape of their futures.
