About My Big Tomorrow

After extensive consultation with high school students, it was determined that there was a lack of useful resources available to help them understand career choices. My Big Tomorrow was created to fill that void with inspiration, information and education.

How it works

So what’s it all about?

My Big Tomorrow aims to inspire young people to think more broadly about their future careers. It is also designed to give them the understanding of the skills they will need in order to succeed in their chosen career.

After hundreds of hours of consultation with educators and students we have developed downloadable literacy and numeracy tasks based on the Stage 5 curriculum. Paired with real-world testimonies and information from industry professionals, My Big Tomorrow will allow young people to explore, discover and learn.

My Big Tomorrow was developed by the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education at the University of Newcastle and funded by the Commonwealth’s Higher Education Participation and Partnership Program (HEPPP). The Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education is a multi-disciplinary and practice-orientated research hub.

My Big Tomorrow is a multi-award winning resource, receiving three awards at local, national and international ceremonies in 2015:

  • NEWi Award - Winner of Best Education Solution category
  • Australian Web Award - Winner of the Education category
  • User Experience Award - Silver for Most Inspirational UX for Educational Advancement

We aim to empower and educate students to dream big and work hard to get there.
