Whitley Alumni Give Guidance to Year 8




FutureFirst have linked with the RSA to harness the experiences and skills of former Whitley Academy students.

Our Year 8 Opening Minds class were lucky enough to receive a Future First experience;  3 former pupils, Laura Lacey (Recruitment Officer for Jaguar-Landrover and Cadbury’s World), Ian Taylor (Ex-Conservative MP), and Kamila Adam (Second Year University student studying Accountancy and Finance at Northampton University) came into the classroom to give some helpful advice about future subject and career choices.

This was skilfully led by Future First’s Mwila Mulenshi, who clearly demonstrated how important Whitley Academy’s competency curriculum and subject choices link to employability in the pupils’ future.
