Access Aspiration is an employability programme designed to provide careers support and guidance for 16 –24 year old young Londoners who are making key decisions about their future careers but struggle to make links with employers. The programme aims to increase social mobility by broadening young people’s understanding of the workplace and increasing confidence, resilience and knowledge.
Access Aspiration can work with you to create pathways for your organisation to tap into young new talent over a 3-year term through one of the ways shown.
If you are a business committed to improving skills, aspiration and diversity and are interested in the programme, then download the outline or please get in touch.

We have worked with a network of over 100 prestigious London employers, such as the Bank of England, EE, Network Rail, the Metropolitan Police, NHS Imperial College Hospitals, BBC and Twitter, to provide a unique menu of opportunities to young Londoners at a critical point in their education.
