Ambition Barnsley

Unlock Your Potential

Our annual careers event AmBition Barnsley is an interactive careers event for young people in Y9, Y10 and Y11 and was held at the Metrodome on Wednesday 25th October 2017. This year’s event was very popular with over 250 young people attending throughout the day with their schools and 600 young people, parents and carers in attendance at the open evening.

We have 2 blogs written by young people from Netherwood ALC, Ella Mai and Hollie, giving us their perspective after they attended the event and carried out some duties as student journalists for us. Click here

We also got lots of feedback and photos via twitter, see #ikic and #ambitionbarnsley via
