School and College Examples

Alumni

Using your alumni can be a powerful way to inspire your students. Building a network of alumni can take time to establish, but can prove valuable when looking for support with classroom or assembly talks or increasing your employer links.

Using LinkedIn

On a LinkedIn profile individuals can list the education establishments they attended. By searching your school or college on LinkedIn this will bring up past students. Why not drop them a line to see if they might like to reconnect in some way?
