Life’s tough at FutureMe. We constantly have to dream up creative ways to connect motivated learners with progressive organisations. Just kidding. It’s always inspiring to watch how a simple interaction can generate waves of positive energy.

For two years, we’ve had the pleasure of piloting our holistic work readiness programme at Christel House School in Ottery. Our grade 10 & 11 learners have gone from strength to strength, so we decided to immerse them in the world of work like never before.

On Tuesday 16 October, we collaborated with 7 amazing businesses to host our first-ever Learning Journeys!

After a quick briefing session, 36 intrepid career explorers took the day off school to embark on an interactive excursion into the working world. Based on their interests, we divided learners between 3 buses bound for completely different career destinations.
