Primary Futures Inspiring Women


Inspiring the Future – Australia


Schools Industry Partnership, an Australian registered charity, has recently been licensed by the UK based charity Education and Employers to run their Inspiring the Future program across Australia.  Building on the program's success in the UK, Inspiring the Future Australia connects schools and youth services with employers and people from the world of work. It was first conceived and developed in the UK following extensive consultation with a range of stakeholders – employers, education, government, third sector and intermediaries. Volunteers from Apprentices to CEOs, Archaeologists to Zoologists spare just one hour a year to volunteer in a school or college near where they live or work to talk to young people about their job and career route.

Teachers connect with volunteers through a secure website, selecting people who best meet the needs of their students from a range of sectors and professions. At the heart, it is volunteers talking informally about their job, career and their educational route. In addition, volunteers can select a number of areas of expertise that might be of interest to students – e.g. apprenticeships, enterprise, mathematics, financial literacy, languages, engineering and technology etc.

Using the concept of online match making, Inspiring the Future uses the latest Odoo software, used by leading companies for eCommerce solutions.
