We believe that being able to build connections and maintain an active network of contacts is increasingly important in the technological, global and dynamic working environment of today. We are proud to offer a comprehensive programme of mentoring and networking opportunities.
Networking is a key aspect of our Year 12 programme. Following networking training, students are given the opportunity to put in practice their fledgling networking skills at our annual Networking Breakfast and to start to make connections of their own.
We also hold regular networking and mentoring hub events for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine for sixth form students. These events facilitate connections between students aspiring to work in these fields with members of our community working in these professions.
The Mentoring Programme further complements our programme of networking opportunities and is a bespoke service offered to Sixth Formers to facilitate contacts with professionals from our vibrant alumnae and parental network.
Additionally, at our sector-based Futures Evenings, students from Years 10 to 13 are able to meet and network with members of our community working in specific sectors.
The wealth and breadth of the collective expertise of our alumnae and parental network provides a strong and powerful resource for current students and recent alumnae.
As students leave St Helen’s and become alumnae, they are able to continue accessing this network through the Development Office and our Business Affinity Events.
