Where Can English Take You?

It can sometimes be challenging to see how the study of a subject at both schools and a higher level will open doors to opportunities in the world of work. We were delighted, therefore to welcome both students and three OV’s to our first virtual careers evening last Monday. Passionate, enthusiastic and articulate are the adjectives which spring to mind.  Tim followed his English studies at university with conversion into law and subsequently exercised his entrepreneurial spirit by setting up his own legal practice. Rosie provided an illuminating insight into the work of Digital Marketing and particularly SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and showed us how you could combine a passion for creative writing with a digital career that will continue to be in demand for the foreseeable future. Emmie demonstrated the value of English skills in her work as a litigation lawyer and shared with us the breadth and depth of her career journey to date. It was inspiring to hear their insights, and we are very grateful for their enthusiasm and generous offering of their time.
