Free Resources – Aspire – Your essential guide to FE, university and careers Post 16 Pupils (Ongoing)

Launched by the social mobility charity upReach, Aspire is a collection of free careers, university and further education resources designed to give students the tools and knowledge they need to make more informed decisions about their future, with free resources including:

Aimed at post-16 students, these resources provide detailed information about a wide range of career options that students from lower-socio-economic backgrounds may have limited exposure to through existing networks.

β€œThe Aspire Guide is invaluable – it breaks down all the options available to students as they come to the end of their compulsory education. It’s well written and our students find it very accessible. Thank you.”

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
