My interview really helped me recognise what options I have when I leave school... and has given me a boost for the future.

Student, Morpeth School

Inspiring Futures delivered an excellent half-day enterprise workshop. which fully engaged and entertained the students. A memorable and worthwhile educative experience. Inspiring Futures really listened to what we needed and took my somewhat half formed ideas and created something special for the students.

Head of Careers, ACS Cobham
