It is the responsibility of all teachers to guide the future thinking and pathways of our students. This begins at an early age when we encourage students to use their current passions and interests and then look at the corridor of possibilities.
Te Kura, in collaboration with the Tertiary Education Commission, (a Government organisation who are stewards of careers in Aotearoa NZ) runs a program called Inspiring the Future. It has been running at Te Kura with amazing success. It may be a blueprint for running your own careers exploration event or using the available resources from the Australian version of Inspiring the Future.
Inspiring the Future encourages students to be curious and to explore future pathways. In these sessions students are invited to try and guess what a person does for a living. After this they head into a breakout room for a deep dive with a person of their choosing. The hardest decision is choosing which expert to listen to. The same principles and processes can be adapted for any context, both face to face and online.
Join Trudy Harrison from Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu in New Zealand as she takes you through a live session of Inspiring the Future. This is a repeat session due to popular demand.
