Wirral Met College has begun to build a fantastic alumni network of former students who are becoming a great part of college life. This year, we have chosen to work with the charity Future First to help reconnect with even more of our former students. The vision is that our College should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community.
- Become a mentor for our current students and share your experiences
- Be a role model for other students following in your footsteps
- Become a guest speaker at student events
- Provide work experience and apprenticeship/traineeship opportunities
- Reconnect with friends
Here are some of our alumni sharing their achievements since leaving Wirral Met College...
Advice to current students:
"Always give 100% whether it’s in your work, activities or experiences because it all goes by so quickly. There is no making up the time once it’s gone, and one day you will find yourself, like me, reminiscing on things that you have done with your college group, and realise it was some of the best things you have ever done!"
-Beth Keenan, left Wirral Met 2015.
"Never give up, as hard as things become and as new challenges arise keep seeing this as more experience and knowledge that’ll give you a brilliant end result. Always have faith and believe in yourself 100% of the time!"
-Shannon Miles, left Wirral Met College 2016.
"I think my advice to current students would be to commit to your course completely - it's such a short amount of time that you're there (even though during revision/coursework/exam times it can feel like hours are actually days!) and the day you finish will feel like the day after you just started! Absorb everything you can from the staff, ask questions, go to the library, get work done on time and simply embrace the experience. Whatever you go on to do next - employment, uni, apprenticeship or whatever - nothing will be like your college days so really do commit yourself and enjoy yourself!"
