Our work in the UK resonates internationally.

Inspiring the Future has attracted considerable international interest, from areas as diverse as China and California, Australia and the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Spain, Romania and Kenya. Although the core Inspiring the Future platform is a UK-funded resource for activity in the UK, we see the relevance of our work internationally, as well as the benefits in participating in and learning from a global community of interest.

Across the world, countries are looking to find ways to enable schools and colleges to work with employers as effectively, efficiently and equitably as possible in order provide young people with the best possible preparation for their working lives.

The challenges might vary from country to country – high youth unemployment, skills mismatch, poor social mobility or youth alienation – but the underlying issues are often strikingly similar. Stronger partnerships between the worlds of employment and education can form part of any solution to these challenges.

Building on our experience developing an international research community, we continually work to bring together interested individuals from inside and outside the UK and to support partners in other countries to develop new volunteering platforms and new communities between education and employers.
