Our sessions run by LinkedIn for students during lockdown were some of our most oversubscribed and successful. 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the LinkedIn session and would like to thank you for your part in organising it. I found it incredibly informative, particularly about thinking of myself as a brand and having the confidence to reach out to people that could help me with my future career. I am looking forward to using my new account.” Ella Patel, Year 12, The Heathland School’
