Godolphin Art & Design department welcomed back 10 Old Girls as part of the school's inspirational Bright Futures careers programme. This event was part of a wider ongoing process to give students at school an insight into today's career options.
This collaborative event invited past students back for an evening to talk to current students about their individual artistic pathways.
All of the OG's had studied either Art or History of Art as one of their A-levels whilst they were at Godolphin. Each Old Girl spoke briefly to introduce themselves explaining their respective combination of A-levels whilst at school, where they went to university, what subject they studied and their career path from leaving formal education to arrive at where they are now.
Careers differed widely including Art therapists, architects, textile designers, advertising and marketing agents, fine artists, interior designers, specialists in fine art auctioneering and those working in branding.
Students, parents, staff, and visitors were entertained by our guests giving a valuable insight into some of the most competitive careers in the artistic field. Once the introductory talks were over everyone was invited to meet the Old Girls in person within the art and design studios for an opportunity to discuss the options available to students in this area of study.
"All the speakers were so inspiring and really helped with understanding pathways to foundation or a degree after. It really opened up our eyes to the further education and careers to consider in the future." Godolphin parent
The evening was a huge success with discussions continuing well into the evening before it was time for the Old Girls to leave.
