Be the Inspiration for the next generation!

Inspiring the Future Ireland (ITFI) is a free, mostly school-based careers education programme. We work to inspire and motivate young people to reach their full potential as they transition from school towards economic independence through many different avenues, such as 3rd level education, apprenticeships, and/or long-term sustainable employment opportunities. ITFI demonstrates a range of career possibilities to young people through positive career role models. Currently our project offers career development workshops, unique work experiences with leading employers, university access events and thematic interactive development events. ITFI is the leading connection between young people and career professionals and has been thoroughly developed to ensure the best opportunities are provided to these young people.
