The Future Self program is proudly supported by the Department of Education and Training.

This initiative aims to enhance and support the learning, transition and aspirational mindset of rural and regional students at the upper primary and secondary school levels. The aim of the program is to build the career aspirations of students by increasing exposure to mentoring, role models and post school pathways. Industry Ambassadors will support students to achieve a greater understanding of employment opportunities and career pathways through school engagement activities such as school presentations, workplace tours, Q&A sessions and supporting a student on work placement.
