Careers Speed Networking Lent 2023

Great School, Wellington College, 11.30am - 1.00pm

 

 

The Wellington Community is delighted to host a Careers Speed Networking event on Saturday 11th March 2023. This session is broken down into slots whereby current students will have the chance to spend time exploring career options and start to think about how best to position themselves to pursue a career in their chosen field.

We are always grateful to any parents who can offer their support and would love to give the students the opportunity to network and talk through practical next steps with members of the Wellington Community. It would be hugely helpful and beneficial for our students to be able to speak to parents, from as many varied professions as possible – particularly those working in creative industries, such as film or art, medical professionals, and engineers.

London Walking Tour: Bermondsey Revealed

Bermondsey Tube Station, 11.00am - 1.00pm

 

 

Join ex-Wellington parent and Qualified London Guide Rosalind Vincent for an in-person walk around Bermondsey. Nick-named The Land of Leather, Bermondsey has a rich industrial past where tanneries, biscuit factories and breweries once dominated.  Sitting south-east of London Bridge, it has been an area of poverty, being badly hit by bombs aiming for the nearby docks during the war.  Today, Bermondsey is experiencing a gentrification which has brought high-class hotels, art galleries and hipster-type cafés to this part of south London.  Come and discover this exciting area which has its roots in an 11th century Abbey. To find out more about Rosalind, visit Home | Wide Eyed London

The walk will take two hours maximum and will go ahead whatever the weather. Tickets cost £20 per person and includes the fully guided tour.
