About ISCO

ISCO is the independent schools careers service from the Inspiring Futures Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1942 to provide careers education and guidance for young people. It has a long history of helping member schools implement the highest professional standards.

The organisation is staffed by teams of regionally-based highly qualified and experienced careers guidance professionals who support members through the provision of in-school services and advice, and of course, the Futurewise scheme. Specialist departments deliver other products and services, including the Information Helpline, Publications and Expanding Horizons courses and events.

Futurewise

Futurewise is the flagship of ISCO services. It is a personalised careers guidance and planning service, delivered in partnership with schools. It provides support and development tools to help students make important decisions about higher education and employment.

Futurewise provides each young member with personalised guidance and support services from enrolment to their 23rd birthday.

To find out more how Futurewise can help young people, you may wish to explore the Futurewise website www.myfuturewise.org.uk which provides an array of tools allowing a student member to build up a personal portfolio of experiences, skills, intersts, contacts and information.
