You're eager to sign up, but not sure what to click?
In case you're puzzled about what category you fit in to, read below to understand exactly what each Inspiring the Future profile means, and know for sure where you should sign up!
Volunteer doesn't just mean someone who is unemployed or retired. For Inspiring the Future, volunteers are anyone who wants to share their career story with young people by being invited into a school to speak. No matter if you're a CEO, Officer or Apprentice; if you work as an Archaeologist, Dentist, Plumber or Zoologist - you should volunteer for Inspiring the Future!
If you employ people and want to get involved in schools to talk about your career, that still makes you a volunteer. Volunteers can be anyone, of any age - who want to share with young people, raise the profile of their industry or share their passion!
Careers Advisers, Head Teachers, Classroom Teachers, TAFE teachers and more can sign up as a teacher on the Inspiring the Future platform, and invite volunteers to their career events. You won't be automatically verified as a teacher if you use any email other than your 'edu.au' address, so please use this official email to avoid delays in using the platform. Teachers who use other email addresses will be manually verified a few days later once we've completed confirmation checks.
