asphaleia Training Runs Destinations Festival in Partnership with The BASE Skatepark in Bognor

On Thursday 6th June we teamed up with the BASE Skatepark in Bognor Regis to hold our first Destinations Festival. The aim of the event was to support and inspire young people who weren’t presently working or studying to think about their further education options and take a step towards a successful future.

Young people had the opportunity to meet employers, take part in art workshops and competitions and even skate. All whilst our staff were available to chat about what our projects offer them. Our intention was that every young person that attended felt there was something that engaged their interests, which is something we strive to achieve for everyone who studies at our further education provision. We also had some of our students from our courses at the Phoenix Centre come and help out, talking to their peers about their experiences of asphaleia and getting involved in the workshops. One of our current students said:

“It is really cool to see what else asphaleia does. I know a lot of my friends would be interested in something like this.”

This was a fantastic event for us and we are grateful for the support locals, professionals and especially the BASE gave us in making it a success. We hope to run more events in the near future in order to promote what we can offer young people as a further education provider, but for now, here’s a reminder…
