Students at Greenfield Community College have been given a valuable opportunity to meet former students and learn about their experiences and career choices.
Year 7 students were able to take part in workshops led by Greenfield alumni to discuss the pathway they have taken through education. The mentors were able to enlighten students, recounting their experience as to how they got to where they are now and the skills and qualities that are required in the jobs they do.
Students were keen to find out how they were inspired to make choices and were given time to consider their own strengths and weaknesses and how they might build upon these to help achieve their personal goals.
The workshops were a great success with students engaging with the mentors and making most of the time available – a big thank you to the members of Greenfield Alumni, Jordan Coulthard (Police Officer), Kayliegh Atkinson (Paediatric Nurse), Mary O’Sullivan (Mortgage Processor/Radio Presenter) Stuart Furlonger (Police Officer) and Steve Boyes (Company Director).
Greenfield Community College have partnered with the national education charity Future First who specialise in helping schools stay connected with former students. The initiative helps motivate and inspire current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future.
We would love to hear from anyone who attended from Greenfield Community College who would like to join our alumni network and stay connected with the school. It doesn’t matter when you left us, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help.
