Alumni inspire sixth formers on visit to Loughborough
During January, three alumni visited Loughborough to share an insight into sport and business careers with sixth form students.
The Inspiring Minds events give Year 12 delegates the chance to experience studying their subject area of choice and to meet with staff and students at Loughborough. They also have the opportunity to hear from alumni in Q&A sessions.
Adam Douglas and David Palmer shared insights into careers in sport with more than 200 students on 22 January.
Adam, who is a Development Officer for the Youth Sport Trust, talked about studying Sports Science with Management at Loughborough, and applying his learnings to a role in the charity sector. Adam told the visitors that working somewhere where you feel like you are actively making a difference to peoples’ lives and seeing the impact is one of the best parts of his role.
Alumnus David Palmer, a recently retired Sports teacher, studied Education & Physical Education at Loughborough. David reminisced on his time as a teacher and noted that those who influence you at school “make the fabric of what you become as an individual”.
Fraser Bull visited campus to deliver a Q&A at the Inspiring Minds: Business day, talking about his role as Associate Partner at Ernst & Young. Fraser, who graduated with a degree in Economics, chatted with around 60 students who were interested in hearing about pathways into the finance sector.
Many thanks to our alumni for volunteering their time and expertise.
