AXMINSTER: College wins £12k grant for its Aspire programme

Wednesday, 21 May 2014

Axe Valley Community College in Axminster has been awarded £12,000 from Devon Education Fund towards its ASPIRE programme. Following an application and a presentation at Devon County Council offices in Exeter, the college clinched almost a quarter of the £50,000 pot up for grabs. Axe Valley Community College ASPIRE co-ordinator Rebecca Levi said: “Devon Education Fund received 58 applications totalling £450,000 of funding requests so the college was delighted to receive such a large amount. “The college is recognised as providing opportunities for ASPIRE students that they would like to extend to other students throughout the school and share the concept at other education establishments. “There is a realisation in education that developing students beyond the four walls of the classroom is also important and inspiring for students and can help provide them with opportunities to clarify their career and life choices.” In short, the ASPIRE programme is for students gifted in particular areas/subjects and involves field trips, projects, coaching, skills workshops and masterclasses with external professionals.
