The Inspiring the Future Australia Campaign will involve a number of sub-campaigns and themed weeks encouraging employers and volunteers from specific sectors, professions and demographics to sign-up and work with schools and colleges to inspire and engage their young people. These include:
Running year round campaigns in schools and colleges, encouraging them to invite current and former apprentices to talk with young people about the benefits of vocational career pathways, what an apprenticeship is and how you apply for one.
Inspiring Futures for Young Women
Focusing on engaging inspiring women as volunteers to talk with girls in schools about the ‘job they do’ and route they took. The purpose is to raise aspirations and break down job gender stereotypes which are evident from age 6. Our ambition is to see women from a wide range of occupations going into Australian schools as role models to inspire young women and broaden their future career options.
Designed and Made
Themed events encourage schools and colleges to invite volunteers that design and make things – from T-shirts to aeroplanes, furniture to glassware – to give students insights into a range of career options in this huge and fascinating arena in which Australia excels.
To encourage language teachers to invite volunteers using languages in their job to talk with school and college pupils to bring classroom learning to life.
These sub-campaigns will be initiated and facilitated by both the ItF team and ItF regional delivery partners as opportunities and needs arise. Please contact the ItF team if you have an idea or a need for a specific campaign/event and if your organisation is interested in resourcing and facilitating one.
