NOT SURE HOW TO HELP YOUR TEENAGER
TO CHOOSE THEIR FUTURE?
As parents ourselves, we understand that you want to help your bright youngster make the best choice so that they can be independent, secure. and have the fulfilling, successful and well paid career they deserve after their studies. But as career development specialists, we know that the rules of how to get in and get on have changed dramatically and so have the options since we made our choices back in the day.
There has never been a greater need for high quality career guidance and support but with careers advice and support both patchy and in some places, pretty non-existent around the UK, just how do you help your teenager get the future they deserve?
INTRODUCING THE INSPIRED TEENAGER PROGRAMME
OUR RESEARCH-PROVEN SOLUTION
Proven to boost career confidence and clarity of outcome and already used successfully with graduates and career changers, we have created a version specially written for parents like you to use with your teenagers.
With the INSPiRED framework at its heart, INSPiRED Teenager gives you the key questions you need to help your bright student discover who they are and what matters most to them. And you'll learn coaching techniques too to help you stay calm and them empowered so that together you can all feel confident about their future direction!
Once learnt, the framework provides a life long point of reference to help individuals remain INSPiRED thanks to having a clear career purpose as the world of work and their needs and wants change, so you can be sure that your offspring will thrive rather than just survive in the future.

Identity – completing this module will help your teenager to be clear about what makes them the person they are. As well as exploring the essence of personality and character, we will also look at the role of values in career happiness and success so that by the end of the module they will be clear about what makes them tick and what matters to them.
Needs & Wants – every one of us has different needs and wants in life whether inside or outside of work. In this module, you will help your teen to explore themes such as money, reward and recognition, autonomy and control, challenge, learning and growth, opportunity awareness, work-life balance, the meaning of success, and lifestyle so that they can identify what they need and want. This module will help them to understand what sort of life they want to live and what needs to be in their career so that they can live that life.
Strengths, Talents & Skills – we all have a different blend of strengths and talents, unique to who we are. This module will help your teenager to identify their gifts and abilities. They will learn the difference between learned skills and natural strengths, why this matters and recognise which ones they want to develop most.
Passion & Interests – as many of the greats from Confucius onwards have recognised, if you do something you love, work and play become the same thing. Informed by theories from the field of positive psychology and flow, this module will help your teenager to identify their passion or strong interest, understand it and explore how they could develop it further in their career. We also look at some of the world’s big issues which may just provide the inspiration they need to create a worthwhile career.
Impact & Contribution – we know in our hearts, and research confirms, that doing things that are full of meaning and purpose leads us to feel good about ourselves and our lives. This module explores how to discover a central career theme provides enduring stability, opportunity and growth in changing times no matter what happens to individual contracts and organisations. We will look to stories from others who have found themes centred around purpose, contribution and meaning as inspiration for helping your teenager find their own purpose and theme.
Relationships – it is hard to find a career which does not involve working with other people to some extent. Given that your teenager will probably spend more time with work colleagues than their partner during the course of their working life, this module will help them to identify the types of people they want to work with – and which types to avoid! This will help them to recognise when a specific role or opportunity is right so that they can be happy and grow through positive connection and support from colleagues, rather than feeling miserable and being inhibited by others.
Environment – just as people can be drains or radiators, the environment we work in can also either energise and lift us up or leave us feeling depleted and worn. Working through this module will help your teenager to choose the geographic location, physical environment and working patterns they want in their everyday life so they can make an informed choice which will enable them to create an enriching and happy working life that supports them fully.
Direction & Goal Setting – in the final module of INSPiRED Teenager, we draw all of the previous seven modules together and distill the major elements to help your teen create a clear and purposeful career vision and mission based on understanding the essence of what it is they want and have to offer to create a fulfilling career. Your teenager will then learn how to set goals effectively so that, by the time the programme ends, they will have meaningful, measurable, and achievable objectives to help them create a career that works for them. And they will learn about how to manage their mindset for success to ensure they get the working life they want easily. Of course, they will also be able to use these techniques in any other part of their life as well.
LEARNING THAT LASTS A LIFETIME…
Once learnt, the INSPiRED Teenager framework provides a lifelong point of reference which will ensure that they know how to rediscover their inspiration as the world of work changes, together with their needs and wants.
And perhaps most importantly of all from your perspective, you can be sure that your child will thrive rather than just survive no matter what happens in the future.
