Join our mentoring scheme
This is a new initiative that we have just launched, to connect experienced Foundation alumni with our recent leavers. The purpose of this scheme is to offer mentoring and support, by connecting people in similar careers. For example, you may be interested in a career in Law and wish to be connected with a Partner of a law firm. Or you may be interested to learn about a particular degree course. Almost 130 Old Warwickians and Old Girls have signed up specifically to offer this mentoring support. If you would like to be introduced to a mentor from the Foundation community, or would like to support someone by becoming a mentor please contact Mrs Sam Crane on firstname.lastname@example.org
Why not sign up to Warwick Foundation Connect? This is the official networking platform for Old Warwickians. It also gives you the opportunity (if you wish) to network and connect with Old Girls and the Landor community. It is a platform for advancing your career with professional networking, as well as reminiscing with friends and finding out what they have been up to. This is a closed network for those in the Old Warwickian and Landor community and it is managed by the Development Office at Warwick School and King’s High. You can sign up at www.warwickfoundationconnect.com
Give talks to current boys
Old Warwickians from all walks of life come into school to speak, or give virtual talks, about different aspects of their lives, including their careers, hobbies, or personal insights into, for example, race or disability. Perhaps you have written a book that you want to publicise. Have you swum the Channel or climbed Everest? Was one of your ancestors a high-achieving ground-breaking female role model? We would love to hear from you.
Provide work experience or Gap Year opportunities
Covid-19 has meant the job market for today’s new graduates and school leavers is more difficult to negotiate than ever before. Could your company offer work experience or an internship to a recent leaver? Are you recruiting staff who wish to take their first steps on the career ladder? Please let us know if you can help.
