Schools and colleges

Connect your primary school, secondary school, or college with volunteers from the world of work for free and improve the life chances of your young people through Inspiring the Future. 

The volunteers are super excited to be in school and this passion rubs off on the students and they get to talk to so many different professionals, which will help them to consider a wider range of pathways. Head of Careers Education, Eastbury Community School, London 

Working with teachers, our volunteers can help bring real-world experiences to curriculum and careers learning through a range of interactive activities both in-person and virtually. 

Our volunteers come from a range of different jobs, sectors and backgrounds and are proven to help motivate learning, raise children’s aspirations and broaden their horizons whilst at school. 

As part of our Inspiring the Future service, we run a dedicated programme for primary schools, Primary Futures.
