Our Careers and Languages Departments delivered a joint event with ‘This is Language’ guest speaker
Our Careers and Languages Departments collaborated to deliver a Careers in Languages event to Year 11 and Year 9 pupils. The guest speaker was George Van Den Bergh, CEO & founder of ‘This is Language’ website, which all Gresham’s pupils have access to. He gave an inspirational talk about the entrepreneurial & communication skills that studying Languages provides. George spoke about the variety of job roles he has worked in worldwide, from teaching to being a chef, to investment banking, to technology, all of which were enabled thanks to his language skills.
Pupils enjoyed further talks from our Languages teachers, which covered their Language pathways together with speakers from engineering, construction, art history, sport, gap year programmes and travel opportunities. It was a fantastic showcase of all the opportunities Languages have given them.
This was a superb inspiration event, which linked Careers and Languages.
