Opportunities to support our careers programme
Can you or your organisation support our careers programme?
Watford Grammar School for Boys has a thriving careers guidance programme. We believe it’s crucial for careers guidance, where possible, to be rooted in ‘real world’ experience. This is why we’ve developed a number of partnerships with organisations who make significant contributions, particularly in Years 8, 9, 10 and 12.
Support from parents, alumni and organisations based within the region is a key part of our success.
Can you help?
We are seeking support from parents and alumni for several events happening in 2024 - if you feel you can help and have not already signed up - then please register.
Please complete our Careers Support registration form today to sign up to help at one (or more) of our careers events.
