Engaging students, equipping teachers and counsellors
FutureSelves engages students – and helps develop new decisions, approaches and behaviours quickly.
In both tertiary institutions and schools, FutureSelves raises performance by developing meaningful, personalised goal systems that feel true and that influence day-to-day behaviour.
FutureSelves provides insight to institutions as well as learners. Students’ results can be aggregated and analysed to inform curriculum offerings, and trends in student wellbeing.
FutureSelves provides educators with training, advice on program design, software, workbooks, lesson plans and coaching and support. It can be used in a range of formats, for example:
- Teachers use it in classrooms to help with course selection, college applications and CV preparation where authentic and insightful statements of self-are needed
- Career advisors use it in small groups for course and career selection
- Counsellors use it one on one

“It was confirming and I could see things really were possible. I just needed to have more faith in myself.”

“It makes people think about their long-term futures.”
