Deloitte Aspire

Activity programme for sixth-formers reached 207 students

We partnered with Deloitte to create ASPIRE, a work experience programme for sixth form students who are less likely to have access to accountancy jobs.

During their placements at the accountancy firm, students were able to put themselves in the shoes of Deloitte professionals – developing key employability skills and learning more about the industry.

We also helped them to prepare for their work experience, with a programme of activities leading up to the placement itself.

And, in the year following the scheme, all attendees were offered continued support through our digital mentoring platform, connectr.

  • 207 young people gained vital experience of working in a professional services company
  • 56% of students who took part identified as female
  • 43 students engaged with a mentor after the programme

“Following my Deloitte ASPIRE week, I have gained further work experience placements elsewhere. I found the skills I learnt at Deloitte, as well as through connectr, invaluable.” – Deloitte ASPIRE student
