The equipped2succeed ‘Girls Aiming High!’ project has been developed with girls in Nottingham aged 11 – 16 to:
Empower girls to aim high – fuel aspiration and increase motivation;
Enable girls to build confidence and self-belief;
Equip girls with the tools to set goals and achieve them.
The programme has combined equipped2succeed personal development workshops with physical activity, sports and creativity tasters.
The teams created a marvelllous exhibition visited by over 50 people.
The Judges hold a variety of roles in the City and beyond; the Mayor of Nottingham, Cllr Neghat Khan, John Ambler, Jo Bradley-Fortune, Zaimal Azad, Steff Webber, Tom Forster and Sameena Ali. They focused on different areas of the girls' achievements including communication and presentation skills, marketing, creativity and teamwork.
The winners in each category as well as overall winners and outstanding individuals will be announced at the Girls Aiming High Celebration Event later in the year.
