Aspirations Work Experience Diploma (AWED)

The AWED is a new course that opens up experiences of the workplace to any young person, improving social mobility, broadening and deepening learning around the employment and enterprise market.

The content is currently split across 23 different sectors with a variety of introductory experiences and longer, project-based challenges which incorporate teaching content from businesses and organisations, mentoring and feedback from their staff, visits and shadowing within the workplace and reflection from students about their personal knowledge, skills and behaviours development.

Our aims at Aspirations are for our students to learn about the world, how it currently works and challenges them to come up with ways to make it better. These ideals are included within the sector projects and can be taken further within the Weyforward Ideas League Challenge as we support our students to create their own companies with more inclusive, sustainable and equitable solutions to our problems.
