Schools are far more than centres of pedagogy, they are communities. For generations educational institutions that have invested in their communities have reaped great rewards.They have bene tted from the development of their alumni networks providing them with mentors, work experience providers, career role models, school governors and donors. Once students graduate from these schools, they remain part of the community, alongside their peers and seniors who are available to advise
them on next career steps, help them launch
new businesses and provide a strong social and professional network.
Over 80 alumni experts from Latin America, Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australasia were interviewed in order to put this guide together. Our work has been to turn decades of expertise into something that is simple, practical and robust for schools to refer to everywhere.
