Aspire supports students with disabilities and long-term conditions to achieve their full potential throughout their academic journey and beyond into the workplace. Content can be tailored for each student, taking into account disability, academic course, preferred learning style, location and recommended assistive technology.
Aspire is a learning support package which covers four key pillars:
Aspire assists in the development of critical study skills to respond to the academic requirements of a student's chosen course.
Aspire can help with the use of recommended assistive technology and software systems to maximise students' learning potential and outcomes.
Aspire helps management and maintenance of positive mental health and wellbeing strategies throughout their student journey, which evidence shows is critical to student attainment.
Aspire helps in gaining relevant career related learning opportunities and employability skills as they progress along their student journey towards graduation to maximise their graduate outcome potential.
