HeyFuture! is about preparing young people for the future that is out there, just waiting for them.
HeyFuture! is about preparing young people for the future that is out there, just waiting for them. If you’re keen to collaborate, get in touch with our team.
We created HeyFuture! to address the massive skill and confidence gap young people leaving school are faced with.
As experts in the future of work we know what skills are needed out there. Our aim is to help 18-22 year olds obtain these skills, prepare for what workplaces out there are looking for, and get hands-on experience to face this future with confidence.
Originally run as a 3-week programme in our Lab, HeyFuture! has changed shape as we ourselves learnt along the way. We now run the programme in a partnership model, and are always looking for new schools or organisations to collaborate with.
On this page you’ll find a run down of the skills of the future, our current model of delivery, success stories and a bunch of resources to help 18-22 year olds bridge the gap between high school and their future.
Based on our research and experience, these are the skills that will help 18-22 year olds navigate that next step, and prepare for the future of work.
We’re currently offering this programme through a partnership model with high schools & other organisations. This allows us to create a bespoke version of the programme designed for your specific environment and young people. Please reach out if this is something you are interested in, we’d love to collaborate.
If you’re a young person looking for ways to upskill and prepare for the future, here are a few suggestions:
