Vicky will draw on her research and practice to explore the emotional and economic capital needed for learners to make transitions through education and into the field of work. She will consider restraining factors in relation to the resources available to them, highlighting the difficulty of being poor and how it impacts on the choices the learners have to pursue their educational aspirations, hopes and dreams. It will draw on case studies to illustrate the role of the teacher is not just to teach but to care and identify and address the barriers which learners face in pursuing their aspirations
