Removing the Biggest Barrier to Young People’s Aspirations

We can give the next generation the spark to ready them for the future says Antony Jinman. 
What would you like to be when you leave school? Were you asked as a child? Perhaps you remember what you said. A footballer; farmer; engineer; doctor; nurse; astronaut? 
Whatever the response, the point is that our dreams matter. Becoming a physiotherapist because an early love of rugby was nurtured is a great thing. An engineer looking back fondly at childhood memories of building mighty cityscapes from Lego is a great thing.

It wasn't an aspiration that was treated seriously, because there weren't many astronaut jobs going in 1972. And yet, as I developed my career around research, teaching and innovation, I did become an 'astronaut' of sorts - an explorer of learning and technology and the connections bet…
