Summary Weve learned - about research - the majority of YP in Barrow do have or want aspirations - that young people think their parents are important for helping develop aspirations - that adults, teachers and children see their goals differently 41. Summary -parents and teachers take their role seriously -that many children see their goals coming from somewhere inside - some young people might have problems stopping them from developing aspirations, but others think nothing will stop them from following their goals 42. Our recommendations We recommend that more help is available for young people to believe in themselves, and to have aspirations that they follow young people have encouragement from parents, teachers, and others 43. Our recommendations We recommend that parents, teachers, and others are supported to help them develop young peoples aspirations there are more opportunities for young people to see what is possible through - making visits and trips out of school - through experts visiting class 44.
