This morning our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Bird launched Rungway, the innovative mentoring app to our new Lower Sixth girls.
Rungway brings alumnae support to all sixth formers within GDST schools, allowing them to seek instant careers advice from a huge database of old girls, including chief executives, doctors, lawyers and scientific researchers. Pupils can post questions anonymously about university and careers.
Alumnae from around the world have responded to queries about preparing for interviews, job choices, internships, university courses and work experience.
Everyone is able to view and add to the advice, creating online conversations around different topics.
“We know how empowering mentoring can be. This app helps provide valuable advice from women with a wide range of experiences, very quickly.”
Mrs C Bird
