‘Every young person not just the privileged, deserves enrichment opportunities outside the classroom.  The Inspiration Programme is an exceptional body which gives young people the opportunity to learn more about themselves and society at large. It inspires their development as confident, interested young people ready to face the opportunities and challenges of adult life.  I commend it most warmly’.
Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice Chancellor, University of Buckingham.

The Inspiration Programme is designed to broaden the horizons, thinking and experience of young people in our community, to make them aware of how our society works and help them understand what their place in it is and can be. The Inspiration Programme is an NCFE accredited one year course that provides direct experiences and real interactions with key pillars and will be piloted in 2017/2018 in schools and colleges in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.

This programme will fill gaps in existing provision by creating opportunities for young people, providing unique and unprecedented access to five important elements of our society

Police and Criminal Justice
Health & Wellbeing 
Arts & Culture
Charity and the Third Sector

 A crucial aspect of the programme is that it will engage students in real experiences, so there will be an emphasis on getting them out of the classroom and into real-life situations.

In addition to the course elements, students will complete a personal log or journal to record their progress and development through the programme. Thomas International will provide a profiling service for all participating students, which will measure their development in terms of self-awareness, self-confidence and emotional intelligence, from the beginning to the end of the programme.

The outcomes from the programme will help young people to be more work ready and to be able to transition more effectively from education into employment, benefitting both themselves and their potential employers.
