Southport College Alumnus Launches
Did you go to Southport College? If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, the College would love to hear from you!
Right now, there are students in the classrooms where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities to the ones that you did. Being connected to you could really help them.
Southport College is now one of nearly 400 state schools and colleges across Britain which have registered with the charity Future First to set up networks of former students or alumni.
Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students.
More than 90,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school or college. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.
It doesn’t matter when you left Southport College, whether you’re in education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help!
“More than 39 per cent of state school students don’t know anyone in a job they’d like to do,” said Alex Shapland-Howes, Managing Director of Future First. “If they see someone who went to the same school or college and grew up in the same community has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job, it helps them see it’s possible for them too. It’s really important for all students to be motivated to succeed in the working world and hearing first hand from relatable people in interesting jobs can make a huge difference.”
A Southport College spokesperson said “We are really keen to hear how our former students are doing and if they can help inspire our current students to achieve success in their chosen subjects. Our aim is to grow a community of alumni that can support each other through networking opportunities, be kept up to date with developments at the College and perhaps find long lost friends.”
Southport College is now waiting to hear from former students through the Future First website. Former students can sign up to Southport College’s alumni scheme by clicking on the “Former Students” link on the website www.futurefirst.org.uk
