For employers

Become a volunteer for Inspiring the Future

Can you spare an hour to inspire local school children?

Delivered by Education and Employers, Inspiring the Future gives every young person in state education the opportunity to be inspired and motivated by real people doing interesting jobs, opening their eyes to a future of possibilities. 

Research shows that by six years old, children have already started to form opinions about  what they can - or can't - be in the future. They are influenced by what they see around them and gender, ethnicity, and social background can play a big part in this.  

You can help change this! By going  into local schools and chatting about the job you love and your route into it, you can spark a young person's imagination about their future.

Inspiring the Future makes it easy to connect schools with industry volunteers through their national online match making platform. 

It's free to register, simply tell them about yourself and your job, then local schools will invite you to speak to their students.
