Have your say

Rotherham’s Thomas Rotherham College is the latest to join forces with a national charity in a bid to set up a new network of former students.

The Moorgate Road college is one of 450 institutions registered with Future First, which seeks to draw on the support of alumni to help current students.

Former students are asked to help today’s young people in a number of ways - as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.

Principal Dr Richard Williams said: “We signed up to Future First’s scheme straight away. A network of past students with all their varied experience will be valuable in supporting current students’ higher education and career aspirations.”
