Build my future

Build My Future is our annual careers festival which takes an innovative approach to help our students prepare for the world of work. Building on real world experience, we invite a range of speakers, business leaders and entrepreneurs to talk at our event, instilling ideas and inspiration in our students, and help them to make the best choices for their life after graduating from us.

A Northern Schools Trust festival, over 300 sixth form students come together across two days to meet with, listen to, and learn from over 60 businesses. Alongside career inspiration from industry experts, the festival focuses on preparing for the future world of work, whether that be down a university, apprenticeship or employment route.

All our talks are aimed at building resilience, celebrating failure in order to succeed, social entrepreneurship, asking for help, the need for men to champion women, and taking opportunities.

Part of the Build My Future festival includes visits to our partners such as UCLAN, LIPA, University of Liverpool, Shop Direct, the Museum of Science and Industry, and Jaguar Land Rover.
