The Aspirations Academies Trust expects all post-16 students at Aspirations Academies to develop work readiness by experiencing the Aspirations Employability Diploma programme. 

The AED helps each individual student to develop the range of skills and capabilities required for success in today’s global world. 

The Aspirations Employability Diploma (AED) aims to provide awareness of work, including a good understanding of the nature of different businesses, along with the development of a range of skills including time management, project management, team work and leadership. There is also a focus on developing communication and presentation skills. The aim is to provide students with a broad experience of the changing world of work and develop innovation and entrepreneurship. 

The AED involves working in teams with real employers on four 8 week long real life projects.
