Are you connecting via Northwood College Connect?

Earlier this year we were delighted to launch our dedicated online platform – NWC Connect – to all Northwood College and Heathfield School alumnae, current families, 6th Form students and staff.

NWC Connect is a specialised network with which users already have a unique link; it provides invaluable opportunities to make new connections that can lead to business associations, work experience, career mentoring, industry advice and internships.

Our girls are able to identify member contacts from specific industries, companies, universities and occupations. Users personalise their profiles and state the level of help they would like to offer and to date, out of the 322 members that have registered, over 70% have offered support which ranges from provision of work experience to initiating introductions to connections, and industry and career advice to reviewing CVs and career mentoring.

We know that almost one third of our members are already actively liaising with new contacts and embarking on networking opportunities. Our Head of Business and Economics, Mr Bennett, posted a request on NWC Connect for a Young Enterprise Business Adviser and as a consequence is now discussing the role with one of our current parents.  NWC Connect has provided our Head of Careers, Mrs Thompson, with contacts within different industries which has resulted in specialised experts coming in to school to share their industry knowledge with our girls. In December we will be inviting NWC Connect members to our first networking event in school, Breakfast with the Head, which will take place early next year.
