Future Moves

The Future Moves program aims to inspire school students and young people from regional and rural areas to attend university. Working across more than 70 partner schools, Future Moves sees approximately 14,000 students each year. Future Moves’ core activities are workshops in schools and events on campus aimed at ensuring that students can act on their aspirations in informed and effective ways, have a greater awareness of the opportunities that arise from pursuing university study and an understanding of how university might be part of their future, while making school studies more relevant.

Girls Have the Power of Engineering

To celebrate National Science Week 2017, Future Moves Leaders assisted CSU Engineering with "Power of Engineering Inc." The two-day event is designed to engage and inspire young women who are interested in all things engineering. Year 8, 9 and 10 students from schools across the Central West including Denison College - Bathurst High Campus, Blayney High School, Cowra High School, Dubbo College Senior Campus, Canobolas Rural Technology High School, Gilgandra High School, Kinross High School, Mackillop, St Matthews Catholic College and Yeoval Central School participated in the event.

The budding engineering students developed and put into practice their critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity skills to solve challenges in hands-on workshops. These included Bits and Binary, Stop an Oil Spill, Float a Clay Boat and Water Filtration, just to name a few.

Thank you to all our science loving Future Moves Leaders who provided their valuable support and enthusiasm with the workshops’ facilitation.

Strong Moves Students Got Game

Denison College - Bathurst High Campus students have competed in the first ever Strong Moves University Games challenge. The Challenge was created by the students with the assistance of CSU Education. Students and Mentors competed for the glory and title of Strong Moves University Games Champions.

Last Tuesday was the last of four days, over a period of four weeks, of activities and workshops in which the students have participated. Hands-on workshops included Engineering, Paramedicine, Psychology and Education through to guest speakers from Nursing, Law and Justice Studies, who shared their paths to university and career experiences.

The CSU Mentors shared their career journeys, experiences and provided a listening ear to the students as they talked about their dreams and aspirations. It’s been a fantastic four-week journey and we’ve enjoyed every moment with the students!

Dream, Learn, Achieve

Port Macquarie’s NAIDOC celebration at Birpai LALC attracted a huge crowd which kept Future Moves Charles Sturt University - CSU busy with their dreamboard activity. Some individuals return to the dreamboard activity each year with the same dream occupation, demonstrating commitment to their long term goal. Future Moves inspires youth to finish High School and consider tertiary education, provides information about pathways and supports the attainment of personal goals.

The Indigenous Access Program is a five-day entry program which helps school leavers and mature age students assess their skills and suitability to study at CSU. It will run in Bathurst (starting August 28th) and Port Macquarie (starting November 4th). Visit http://futurestudents.csu.edu.au/unilife/indigenous/access-program
if you believe that you are ready to achieve your goal.
