Abstract/Summary

A focus on aspiration and attainment raising amongst students from under-represented communities fails to address the significant importance of trust as well as the role of parents in shaping and supporting the aspirations of their children. Yet, if parents are omitted from initiatives, a significant hurdle to raising aspirations is not addressed. Building on our work with parents, we consider the importance of partnership in developing meaningful relationships with parents as well as the value and significance of connecting with community groups, when seeking to empower and support the development of women and girls
