Chief Executive of the London School of Business and Finance, Maurits van Rooijen has written an article on how assuming that the best grades leads to going to the best Universities, and from there to the best jobs, is not right. In reality life is much more complicated and may not always work out that way.
He says that ‘the best schools help students to discover their interests and strengths, building up a positive attitude, determination, and self confidence’. Learning these things will then improve young people’s ability to deal with setbacks, a real necessity in the world of work.
Founders4schools aims to help students in their preparation for employment through access to business leaders in the local community who then give advice, guidance and share inspiring stories. In just 5 minutes teachers can book an event and show students that there’s more to success than having good grades.
