There are many parents, Old Cranbrookians and friends of Cranbrook School who have expressed a desire to become involved in helping our students by giving careers advice and speaking at careers events. The Development Office and Careers Department at the School brings together these offers of knowledge, time and expertise.
Careers Evenings and Careers Fair
The voices of people closely associated with Cranbrook School always have more resonance for the students, and consequently they have the greatest impact in terms of enlightenment and motivation. We run a series of careers events annually and we would be delighted to hear from those of you who would be interested in sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm for your area of work by giving a presentation. Our Careers Fair involves manning a 'stand' representing various areas of work and chatting informally to students. Our 'A Levels and Beyond' evenings cover subject specific careers, university study and apprenticeships.
In some cases a one-to-one relationship is beneficial to students who are seeking to progress in a particular field of work. There are recent positive examples of this in public relations and law. On an individual basis we would like to be able to put students in touch with Old Cranbrookians who would be willing to give advice and guidance in their particular field, and make suggestions as to the best way to advance in a career in their field.
Cranbrook offers a diverse range of master classes, guest speakers and presentations as part of our 'enrichment' programme. We are always keen to hear from OCs, male and female, from the worlds of business, academia, sport, media, science and the arts who could offer inspirational talks to our students.
