Inspiring Futures is a school based career development program delivered in a fun and interactive way enabling students to explore 21st century work options. We use a range of digital tools as we uncover careers as well as enabling work experience opportunities and the investigation of future education options.
Inspiring Futures is designed to work with students who are struggling to see the relevance of education and may be disengaging from school. We work in partnership with teachers and students to implement a program to help young people identify a pathway to their ideal future.
Research shows that quality career exploration assists young people transition from school to work with more ease and they are more likely to remain engaged with education. Inspiring Futures has built on this research and offers benefits to both school and students by:
- Providing access to a qualified career counsellor who brings knowledge, skills and connections to the school environment
- Developing relationships with a range of different employers and industries which can enhance student’s work experience opportunities
- Students making connections outside the school environment which can assist them in their future
