Aspire 2017

The ASPIRE program is a partnership between Deakin University and Northern Bay College aimed at increasing the aspirations of high achieving year 6 to 10 students.

Students within this cohort have been recognized as having strong potential.

Guidance is provided by Deakin University Pre –Service Teachers with an emphasis on high expectations and raising the aspirations of each student. The Pre-Service Teachers mentor the year 6 to 10 students, encouraging them to explore their interests and post-compulsory schooling aspirations.

Students are encouraged to immerse themselves within university life and gain an insight into the variety of tertiary pathways available to them, all while gaining an understanding of the steps involved in achieving these goals.

This program has forged relationships within Deakin, with local business and industry which provides the opportunity for students to directly experience aspects of possible career pathways.
