CVHS Alumni Association
Chelmer has launched an Alumni Association to help you stay in touch, share your experiences and support the school in future. We welcome former students, and past and present parents, staff and governors.
To network: reconnect and relive memories with former classmates. Establish contacts for career aspirations. “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is still an important factor today. This will be accomplished through social events, reunions and newsletters.
To inspire: You can be a role model to current students and other alumni. You can participate in careers talks about your industry and help break students’ perception of career paths. Or perhaps attend an Awards Evening as a special guest or keynote speaker.
To advise: Become a Career Mentor to current students, to given guidance on a specific field or general professional skills. This will be done in careers fairs, and career interviews. You can also help fundraise for alumni-dedicated goals.
“… for each career talk experienced with somebody from outside of the school, individuals’ wages at age 26 were higher by up to 1.6% per talk.”
(1970 British Cohort Study, ongoing)
In addition to supporting your own career aspirations, the alumni association can be a way to advertise about your business, recruitment or social events. You will also be invited to attend school events, such as school productions, and exclusive offers will be made available. This is in addition to offering Alumni meetups.
