Inspiring Young People to Develop

Personal, Social, Creativity and Technology Skills for the

21st Century World of Work

Gaia Innovation Ltd is a non-profit Social Enterprise founded by Julia Muir to facilitate positive interactions between students and employers in order to inspire young people to equip themselves with higher-level skills, and to connect employers and universities to diverse talent pools.


We are funded by sponsors, employers and universities, and therefore our services are always free of charge to schools and students.

Building a Positive Interdependent Ecosystem between Schools, Employers and Universities

Our services cover three areas:


The Inspiration for Innovation Programme for Schools and Employers

The Search for A Star Programme on behalf of Employers

Inspirational Events on behalf of Employers and Universities

Develop an Employer Engagement Strategy

We work with schools to facilitate as many interactions as possible between students and people from the world of work and academia.  We carefully plan predefined success outcomes to measure against and ensure that the interactions have a positive impact.

Develop an Outreach programme

We work with employers to connect with schools in their local community, and help to deliver open days, employability skills training and work experience at employer locations. We specialise in assisting employers to attract talented female applicants.

Widen Access and Participation

We connect diverse groups of primary and secondary school students with universities who see inclusivity as a priority to access the best talent.
