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.

Our students found the finance career insight day very informative and interesting. Moreover, all of the speakers gave fantastic insights into the ‘world of finance’ through the engaging presentation.
The ‘speed networking’ was great as you could chat to people with experience in their field in a relaxed environment.
Following today, I will definitely look out for any more Inspiring Futures Events and will certainly recommend these events to people as they are a superb way to gain exposure into a specific area of work.Christian Hutchinson – Rugby School
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.
I liked the ability to discuss my options with people outside my family and circle, and being able to use their opinions as well.Student, Strathallan School
