Stairway to Success

Stephensons College, Coalille
Tue 4th September 2012 (9:00am) - Thu 6th September 2012 (4:00pm)

Stairway to Success will run over 3 days, with 6 × 45 minute sessions on each day. The aim of the sessions are to raise new learners aspirations, set realistic and clear goals and for them to hear first hand from you about what the working world is like.

Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th September
You an volunteer for one day or all three.

Stephenson’s College is a further education college and students will aged 16 upwards. These sessions will form part of their induction week and we would hope that they leave the session feeling energised and motivated about joining Stephenson College and taking up a course.


We are looking for business volunteers who would be willing to deliver a short motivational talk (5 minutes max) in each session giving a snapshot of their career progression from school leaving age, through Further Education or training and onto their various job roles and responsibilities.


We aim to have two ‘role models’ per session, one male, one female. Ideally we are looking for those who have taken a vocational route into employment, to those that have taken a University route, as the majority of the audience will be following this more hands on style of qualification and therefore it will be more relevant to them. Although, any individuals who do not fulfil the usual stereotype of ‘school- Uni- work’ would be great, for example if you revisited your education later on or studied part time whilst at work.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain real life experiences from those that have “been there, done that and got the T-Shirt” at the beginning of an exciting new chapter in their lives.

If you would like to sign up to this event then please get in touch, and we would be happy to help you with any queries that you may have.
