    After looking at many CV templates a recurring topic to place on the CV is eventual career goal and longer term aspirations however i wish to place down educational aspirations instead as I see myself within college and university for the next 5 years, would that be okay?

    I don't think many people know what they want to do at 16 tbh, with the exception of those who are committed to getting into medicine/ engineering/ law etc. I would have thought any evidence of drive or ambition is good. Ideally it would be related to the job you're applying for though

    I would advise against it, especially if the job you are applying for isn't relevant to that aspiration. Remember, a CV is an advert for an interview, not a job. It needs to provide enough incentive to the reader for them to think "I want to know more about this person."

    Good luck.
