Big Aspirations

By October 11, 2017Projects

Raising aspirations with Selby primary schools.

Selby Big Local is working with the three primary schools in the Big Local area – Selby Community Primary School, Barwic Parade Primary School and Selby Abbey C of E Primary School – to deliver, ‘Big Aspirations’, a bespoke, year-long raising aspirations programme for year 6 pupils in our community.

Working with our delivery partner, NYBEP, Big Aspirations aims to raise career and personal aspirations and excite pupils about the world of work, equipping them with life skills to make a successful transition to high school.

Big Aspirations will launch in November 2017 with a full day careers fair at the Regen Centre in Riccall, providing opportunity for pupils to meet a range of businesses across diverse sectors.

Over the coming months pupils will be supported to reflect on ‘what’s stopping me’ and will be taken on a journey to build confidence in setting personal goals.

We’re looking for members of our local community to be part of this exciting project….

Do you have a job you love, could you help to excite young people about your career, or did you have an experience at school or college that you think would motivate others?

We’d love to hear from you and hear your story.

Please contact to find out more.
