Our students found the finance career insight day very informative and interesting. Moreover, all of the speakers gave fantastic insights into the ‘world of finance’ through the engaging presentation.
The ‘speed networking’ was great as you could chat to people with experience in their field in a relaxed environment.
Following today, I will definitely look out for any more Inspiring Futures Events and will certainly recommend these events to people as they are a superb way to gain exposure into a specific area of work.Christian Hutchinson – Rugby School
Inspiring Futures’ outstanding loyalty, expertise and continuity of innovative and detailed Careers provision has been a significant factor in the successes of generations of Bedford School boys.
With Career Investigator in Year 7, team building in Year 9 with the Chocolate Challenge (a hit every year), Futurewise psychometric testing in Year 10 to 1:1 interviews in the 5th Form, university and degree apprenticeship resources, advice and presentations for the Sixth Form, Inspiring Futures are beyond compare in an increasingly crowded market.
With their ability to provide unbiased, expert advice on almost anything our boys ask, and the fact that we have the same Inspiring Futures staff each year, Bedford School’s staff, boys and parents have built lasting relationships with Inspiring Futures.Mel Lincoln, Head of Careers at Bedford School
