Year 8 #FutureMe Program

The #FutureMe workshops are aimed at Year 8 students with a focus on life-long learning. Delivered by In2Uni Mentors, students are exposed to information about post-school options, and are encouraged to identify their personal strengths and interests to enable them to make decisions about their learning journey.

The Year 8 #FutureMe Program incorporates school-based workshops for students and teachers, and is supported by a progression based curriculum. Students explore the concept of a progression journey, identify occupations of interest, and recognise the link between their own studies and the post-school options that could lead to success. The program also incorporates content regarding aspiration and the language of higher education whilst engaging students in a 'hands on design thinking’ experience.

The sessions are interactive and designed to provide students with an introduction to higher education concepts and language whilst giving them the opportunity to better understand themselves and build confidence in their own skill sets. The Year 8 #FutureMe program is targeted at ALL Year 8 students, regardless of their future work/career plans and this must be taken into account with the delivery of the modules.
