In 2018 we celebrated student achievement at the inaugural Student Social Mobility Awards. The nominees and winners had overcome huge barriers to achieve great success academically, professionally and personally. We wanted to share their stories and their tips for sixth formers, to inspire other young people to think about their future and work to realise their potential.

These students inspired the aspire project. We produced the guide, resources for teachers, and we recorded videos of the Student Social Mobility Award nominees discussing their experiences and answering our questions about university and careers. We hope that this project will inspire sixth formers all over the UK to aim high, stretch themselves and realise their potential.
