Free support available for your school or college

25 September 2018

Inspiring the Future is a free national service which uses innovative match-making technology to connect your students with volunteers – this three-minute video clip explains how it works. 

You can quickly and easily select and invite the volunteers who best meet the needs of your students, to support with a range of careers related activities including chatting informally to students about their jobs and career route, jobs shadowing or mentoring – meeting five of the Gatsby benchmarks.

It enables students the opportunity to meet people (over 45,000 have volunteered) from a wide range of backgrounds from all levels and all sectors: from apprentices to CEOs, archaeologist to zoologists. 

For more details on other free programmes run by the charity Education and Employers including Primary Futures – volunteers for primary schools and Inspiring Governance – highly skilled people wanting to become school governors, please visit or call 020 7566 4880.
