Guide to career paths

TANBRIDGE House School in Horsham alongside local media agency PMW Communications, has launched its 2012 Ambassadors Programme for years seven and eight.

The initiative came about when a statistic was released a few years ago stating that 80 per cent of people were unhappy with their jobs.

To try and combat this and ensure that students were headed down the correct path, the Guildford Road school and PMW began setting up one day intense work placements for students in their desired fields.

The successful programme has continued over the past four years and the response from the students for the 2012 campaign was amazing with in excess of 75 ambassador requests across both year groups.

However, only four lucky students could be selected to partake in their dream jobs and this year they are Sam Carter, Jennifer Fletcher, George Hazell and Jack Sayers.

Sam Carter has a career aspiration to become an architect and is spending the day at Liam Russell Architects in Shoreham.

Jennifer Fletcher hopes to pursue a career in Computer Animation and will be joining the BAFTA winning creative studio LittleLoud in Brighton.

George Hazell will be spending the day with Gobo Games in Brighton to try his hand at his desired career, a games programmer.

Jack Sayers would like to become a chef and will be spending the day with a local restaurant.

Jules White, headteacher at Tanbridge House School, said: “The Ambassadors Programme is something that our students have always been extremely excited to take part in and we are delighted to be able to offer them the chance to taste their desired future career.”
