Aspire - Vocational Studies

Aspire is a course that helps young people discover a sense of destiny and begin to turn that destiny into a reality. We create opportunities for young people to become actively involved in their community through projects that engage them with the community directly, raising the aspirations of each young person through placement opportunities, youth work, and so much more.

Its purpose is to help engage and creatively move forward any young person who is struggling to find access to further education, training and employment
opportunities. Since the project started, Aspire has had many young people go through its courses, with the majority of those attending successfully accessing college, apprenticeships and employment. Aspire is not a programme to reduce youth unemployment, but an opportunity for young people to realise their potential, discover their aspirations and find long term ways of seeing them become reality.
