What People Say About Our Programs

About illuminate Education

Find out more about who we are as a business.

The focus of illuminate is to deliver meaningful and inspiring experiences for students and young people that will activate their passions, get them excited about the business world, and confidence to see how they can leave their mark. We design all of our education experiences around our motto of Believe in Tomorrow Today, as we want to deliver meaningful education experiences where young people learn about their innovative capacity as well as growing in confidence and resilience for whatever they choose to do in their future.

Founded in 2010 by Adam Mostogl, illuminate is a multi-award-winning business that remains completely focused on empowering our young people – and making it fun too. We’re not about delivering textbook materials and making students attend lengthy presentations; instead, we’re focused on making everything we’re involved in as engaging and supportive as possible, which has seen all of our programs met with great success. Since our launch, we’ve worked with a number of major organisations to deliver creative workshops, education programs and facilitation sessions with large audiences, helping us empower our next generation today. A key part of what we do is to challenge students to step out of their comfort zone, which has, in turn, transformed their approach to work and school, as well as placing value in our young people to help them to realise and unleash their potential because the world is ready.

We do this in a number of different programs, ranging from 3 to 5 day education experiences mapped to national vocational outcomes as well as the Australian Curriculum, to shorter and more intensive sessions around key skills and opening students’ eyes to the workforce. To date, we’ve impacted over 2700 students from around Australia through these programs – but recognise that there are so many more who need to be inspired believe in tomorrow today, which is why we are passionate about sharing what we do far and wide.
