Work Inspiration is business-led initiative that provides young people with opportunities to experience the world of work first hand in a meaningful and inspiring way. More than just work experience, Work Inspiration provides a way for employers to play a valuable role in shaping their future workforce – and the next generation of Australian workers.
Originating in the UK, The Smith Family is working with the Foundation for Young Australians and the National Australia Bank (NAB) to replicate and adapt the program for Australian employers.
Through our Partnership Brokers program, we support employers to develop three career engagement activities or ‘Insights’ that allow students to explore career journeys, connect with their business and meet and talk to staff.
The experience provides inspiration for students to broaden their perspectives and develop aspirations, whilst also inspiring businesses to showcase their work and employment opportunities, engage with the future workforce and support their local community.
To help expand the program nationally, additional support has been received for the Work Inspiration Campaign by the Australian Government Department of Education through the Making Career Connections Initiative.
