The Aspire Foundation assists disadvantaged groups and individuals in accessing vocational education and training (VET), enhancing employment opportunities and promoting lifelong learning.
About the Aspire Foundation
Aspire has long recognised that not everyone has the opportunity to access high-quality training and education and that many institutional, circumstantial and financial obstacles exist in Australian society. The aim of the Aspire Foundation is to facilitate excellence, innovation and equity in the VET sector.
The Foundation’s objectives are to:
enhance access for disadvantaged people and communities to Vocational Education and Training(VET) and lifelong learning for individuals and groups, and
promote excellence and innovation in VET and lifelong learning.
Since its inception in 2001, the Aspire Foundation has provided over $300,000 to a range of charitable organisations to run innovative programs which engage people in meaningful education and training.
