Futureversity’s programmes are designed to tackle what we call the ‘Educational Blindspot’ that young people from disadvantaged communities experience during their school holidays. Our evaluations of young people, schools, parents, and guardians help us to assess if we are achieving that.
We measure against our superpowers of Resilience (or the capabilities for work), Self-Awareness, Self-Assuredness, Receptiveness, and Drive.
“I would definitely recommend FutureVersity to other because it has really helped me grow and also gave me an insight of what the business life could be.”
