Inspiring Futures is a previously funded programme that combines the best elements of two of our most successful enterprise and employability schemes; our network-wide Get a Job programme; and Mahdlo Youth Zone in Oldham’s Changing Futures programme. Young people gain a full understanding of available career options, through exploring a wide variety of career opportunities, experiencing the world of work and participating in enterprise activities. The programme embeds an understanding of the link between education and employment.
Inspiring Futures aims to:
- improve young people’s ability to make career decisions and their optimism about the future;
- help young people to increase attainment and be more likely to enrol in post-secondary education;
- reduce young people’s likelihood of becoming unemployed; and
- increase young people’s earnings after they complete their schooling.
