Inspirational Mentoring with The Girls' NetworkPosted on: 12th Oct 2020
At La Retraite, we enhance our girls lives through an enriching programme of extra-curricular opportunities, learning experiences and partnerships with external organisations. Through our unique partnership with the Girls’ Network, girls will be inspired and empowered to strive for their aspirations and career goals.
Girls were partnered with female mentors from a range of backgrounds and professions, matched based on interests and career paths. During lockdown, we were thrilled to hear that engagement was very positive and the girls look forward to continuing work with their mentors, with plans to become part of the TGN consultancy board and attend online webinars this year.
Shantae, Year 11, has said: “The programme has been very beneficial for me. I have been provided with support and advice when deliberating my future career path from my mentor, who has taught me of the hard work needed to get there, and the opportunities that will help me throughout. It has also been a great way to make contacts and network.”
