Ambitions comes to Stratford Park Leisure Centre

Popular careers event, Ambitions, comes to Stratford Park Leisure Centre, Wednesday 7 November, 16:30 – 19:30.

Ambitions provides students with a unique opportunity to talk to employers, colleges, universities and training providers to discover the vast array of career and learning opportunities available both locally and nationally - as well as learn about the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to excel.

Since its inception over 10 years ago, Ambitions has grown to become one of the biggest careers event for young people in the South West. This year’s event in Bristol was home to over 120 exhibitors and was attended by more than 4000 visitors.

Stroud is a town with a huge heritage, in the heart of the five Valleys of Stroud District, with diverse and ever-growing opportunities for young people. Employers, however, continue to find a mismatch between the changing skills needed and finding passionate young people with those talents and aspirations. Input from employers towards industry specific careers advice and guidance is central to ensuring not only that young people are inspired by available career options but also that employers are actively contributing towards the development of skills that they need now and in the future.

Over the years, Ambitions has grown to become one of the most comprehensive young careers events in Stroud District, attended by exhibitors from employers, training providers, colleges and universities. The event is supported by Stroud District Council Magnox/NDA/Cavendish Fluor Partnership, SGS College and the University of Gloucestershire, 2018's event aims to match and exceed that.
