Let’s discuss WTF – What’s the Future…

We are heading up a project called The Grand Student Survey – an initiative to enable, engage and embrace the young Generation on a pathway to the Future of Work.

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

Through the collaboration and research, we will co-design a platform that enables connections, work experience opportunities and supports schools, innovation and business at the community level.

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

💔 Disconnect

🏫 School

👪 Parents

🏢 Organisation

🏬 Industry

Our Vision

Our Mission

Promote skills and opportunities to undertake Future of Work


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.
