Awards: 7th Most Innovative Government, Education & Not-For-Profit Company
Future Seekers provides an imaginative, interactive approach to career-related learning for primary school students in years four to six. Students explore how their strengths and interests relate to the world of work, opening their minds to a range of career possibilities they might not otherwise have considered, or been exposed to.
The program is structured to help increase students’ belief in themselves to achieve certain career aspirations, and along the way become more engaged at school. A total of 525 students from low socioeconomic areas have been positively impacted so far, across seven states and territories, with further expansion planned.
