TES Growing Ambitions

What is TES Growing Ambitions?

TES Growing Ambitions is a website for teachers and careers professionals to share free resources. It holds practical resources that can be used to support young people’s learning about jobs, careers and the world of work and help them to channel their future ambitions and aspirations. The Times Educational Supplement (TES) and charity the Education and Employers Taskforce jointly created Growing Ambitions. The site is editorially managed and maintained by TSL Education.

What inspired Growing Ambitions?

The idea arose from a recommendation in a pro bono report by Deloitte (commissioned by the Education and Employers Taskforce) entitled Helping young people succeed: How employers can support careers education. The report recommended increasing and improving employer involvement in providing young people with careers education, information, advice and guidance. Visit Growing Ambitions

The Taskforce has worked with the Times Educational Supplement(TES) to develop an online careers portal for teachers called Growing Ambitions. The website pulls together existing careers resources provided by a diverse range of organisations, and is structured in a way that is easy for teachers to navigate. The website covers securing professional careers advice, careers by subject, an A-Z of types of jobs, and information on career routes including apprenticeships, further education, getting a job, self-employment, and university. The site already contains over 3000 resources from some 130 organisations
