Taking a gap year helps students develop important life skills for the work place​. Inspiring Futures run a series of gap, travel, volunteering and skills development fairs in partnership with host schools across the country.

Futurewise Gap Fairs give students the opportunity to receive valuable advice and guidance from experienced and well renowned exhibitors such as the Year Out group.

Students will have an opportunity to explore the range of gap year opportunities on offer by talking directly with a variety of companies who offer anything from skills courses, such as learning to sail or preparing for medical school, to volunteering and travel experiences such as marine conservation projects in Fiji.

A calendar of gap fairs can be found under the events section.

My Futurewise profile is about me today; the careers discussion afterwards was about me tomorrow.

This is a great programme for supporting students and parents as a resource and guide to help with career paths. The conference programme offers a wide range of opportunities to learn about the array of pathway options available to young people, helping parents to support their children’s thinking about career choices.

Future wise allowed me to consider options that I had never previously considered which was great. I really enjoyed the interview process as it showed me some university options that I had never thought about. I really enjoyed the whole experience and thought it was very accurate.
