What’s The Future?

Today’s youth is known to have a promising future marketplace – perfect opportunities for a successful career or inspiring entrepreneurship. Yet, we find through our work that today’s high school students struggle with choosing their pathway after school.

We are heading up a project called The Grand Student Survey (TGSS) – an initiative to enable, engage and embrace the young generation. We get to know our youth and understand their attitudes and beliefs, after which we help propel them towards their future pathway.

Our objective is to listen, collaborate and get feedback from students, parents, educators & industry partners.

This collaboration goes hand-in-hand with our platform that:

A) Enables students to gain connections and work experience opportunities;
B) Supports schools, innovation and business; and
C) Eases the workload of school staff as well as industry partners.

TGSS has been designed to spotlight important issues, such as:

💔 Disconnect

Between students, schools and industry partners.

🎒 Students

🏫 School

👪 Parents

🏢 Organisation

🏬 Industry

Disparities in work experience program structures.

How

What are we doing to reach these goals…

We are listening to what the next global generation have to say – it is the largest generation ever, after all – comprising around 20% of Australia’s population.

This campaign is designed to have an open a dialogue – with a focus on you. We want to provide an opportunity to have your voice heard, have an opportunity to explain your

worldview,

and take hold of your future.

We are working alongside people who contribute to the empowerment of young Australians. Through collaboration, The Grand Student Survey Campaign is bought to new heights.

We welcome organisations and individuals who want to help us prepare for tomorrow by supporting future skills and experience today!

Examining current trend is a key component of changing the future for young Australians. We are looking at the data and statistics from the experts.

If you are a researcher or data hero, who has done amazing work – we would love to hear from you! Your contributions will help young Australians prepare for a better future.
