Former students can play a huge role in inspiring others by talking about their journey and sharing their knowledge of the world of work and how they got there.

If you are a former student of St Mary’s Catholic School, you can help support our careers programme by:

  • Inspiring students;
  • Directly linking curriculum subjects to the world of work;
  • Use your network or friends and colleagues to increase employer engagement at St Mary’s;
  • Provide accurate and clear pathway information about the industry you now work in; and
  • Help young people understand the skills and qualifications needed to enter the world of work.

We are always looking for former students of St Mary’s Catholic School to come into school and support us as part of our new Alumni Network to improve our careers provision, whether you are in university, a graduate, an apprentice or an employee.

Alumni play a key role in inspiring other young people through sharing their own journey and knowledge. This vital experience can help our students make informed decisions regarding their career and fully utilise the pathway information and sector knowledge shared with them.
