What is Start Small; Dream Big?

Start Small; Dream Big is part of the government’s drive to ensure all young people are supported to develop the right skills and knowledge to enable them to thrive in their future careers. Research shows that children can fix their aspirations and create future-limiting stereotypes by as young as six years of age. Research has also shown that Career-Related Learning (CRL) can widen aspirations and challenge stereotypes so that children keep an open mind about the world of work as they move through education.

Consequently, the DfE established a pilot to help tackle some of these issues.
