Former students from Soham are being asked to go back to the classroom to inspire others with career confidence and academic success.
The students past and present from Soham Village College, in Sand Street, have joined a programme run by the national education charity Future First which helps state schools and colleges develop ‘old school tie’ networks.
The former students will return to volunteer at assemblies and workshops designed to motivate young people and broaden their jobs horizons.
Soham Village College wants to contact former students in established careers and recent leavers in further education, alumni who live nearby and those who have moved away.
Nick Oakhill, careers education, information, advice and guidance manager, said: “We signed up to Future First’s scheme straightaway.

“A network of past pupils with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current pupils’ jobs horizons and equip them for the world of work.
“We look forward to engaging with former students through this coming and future years.”
