Apprentice TV star inspires students at Ashton Sixth Form College

24 April 2015

Sanjay said: "It's been fantastic to come back to Manchester (having lived here for 4 years whilst at university). I love the city and the people. Visiting Ashton Sixth Form today was a great opportunity to pass on knowledge to students which will hopefully encourage them to take advantage of the opportunities available to them. I've been hearing about the Imagine Your Future Careers event next week and feel this is a great way to get young people thinking about their futures and what they want to achieve."

Sanjay then stayed for the Colleges Higher Education evening where he delivered a motivational talk to parents about inspiring futures. 

Hazel Kindley, Guidance Manager at Ashton Sixth Form College said: “We were delighted to welcome Sanjay Sood-Smith to Ashton Sixth Form College as part of our Imagine Your Future initiative.  His motivational presentation provided our business and maths students with the fantastic opportunity to learn from his successful banking career and appearance on The Apprentice. Sanjay is deeply committed to supporting young people and helping them achieve their full potential and his motivational talk was very inspirational. It was the perfect way to launch our Imagine Your Future Careers Event.”

Ashton Sixth Form College will be holding an Imagine Your Future Careers Fair on Tuesday 28 April 2015 5.00 – 7.30pm bringing together universities, employers, apprenticeship and training providers. For more information and to sign up to attend visit
