High Impact Programs

Beacon Foundation offers a series of one-day programs, targeted to specific age groups from Years 7 to 12. Each program is designed to prepare and motivate young people for a successful post-secondary school transition by working with each individual to develop highly sought after employability and 21st century skills.

Our professionally facilitated programs have a high level of involvement from our industry partners and build basic professional skills ranging from dress codes to professional etiquette. In each program, industry representatives share their unique stories and career journeys, in addition to encouraging and motivating participants to recognise their own potential and aspirations.

Beacon Foundation’s High Impact Programs create exceptional experiences for young people and builds their capacity for a successful transition from the classroom to the world of work, further education or training. We produce work-ready young Australians who are inspired, motivated and equipped to reach their full potential.

Prepare introduces students to the world of work and gives them an insight into prospective careers and work readiness skills. Raising aspirations, goal setting and the value of adopting a growth mindset are key focus areas of this program. The evidence for early intervention in all aspects of education and employment is solid. Prepare sparks interest and curiosity for students beginning their journey into high school education, preparing for casual employment and exploring career possibilities.



Polish empowers students to better navigate their transition into the future world of work. The program equips students with an awareness of global trends, the demand for cultivating a transferable set of skills and the importance of self-advocacy. Through interactive modules students learn to identify, build and promote their own enterprising skills including communication, teamwork, problem solving and networking.



An intensive one-day program, Perform focuses on supporting young people who are in the throes of making crucial decisions about their life after school.
