Our Australian Partners
To ensure the success of Inspiring the Future – Australia, Schools Industry Partnership plans to work collaboratively with a wide range of partners from the government, education, business and community sectors. It will be essential to also engage the support of senior representatives of leading peak organisations and agencies representing education and employment, as well as the main employer and workforce representative bodies in Australia, in order to build understanding of relationships between education and the community and to enable greater and more effective collaboration.

About Education & Employers charity
The Education and Employers charity was launched on the 15th October 2009 with the aim of ‘ensuring that every school and college has an effective partnership with employers to provide its young people with the inspiration, motivation, knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to help them achieve their potential and so to secure the UK’s future prosperity’.
The charity works to achieve this by working in close partnership with leading national bodies representing schools, colleges and employers.
