About

Portsmouth Aspirations Week is a chance for children to start thinking about what they might want to be in future, for young people to learn about pathways into a variety of careers and for adults to learn new skills, achieve qualifications, progress in their career or get back into work after a period of absence.

You can keep up with what's happening by using #AspirationsWeek on social media - please share your own photos of activities you are involved in, using the same hashtag.

There are a range of events taking place during the week and if it inspires you to look into further learning and career opportunities, there is more information available.
