G&L FuturesWorkplace Skills

All students take part in our Futures Programme to go beyond the academics and help students develop key skills valued by future employers such as problem-solving, teamwork, creativity, resilience and an entrepreneurial mindset.

We welcome parents, alumnae and friends of the school to speak to the girls about the skills and qualities that will help them be successful in the workplace, aside from their academic credentials, and to talk about their own career pathways. Our biennial Careers Discovery Event invites speakers from a plethora of careers to speak to students and parents, including those from the fields of medicine and dentistry, architecture, corporate and social responsibility, finance, technology, law, the civil service, the charity sector, film and tv, song writing, music production and game development.

G&L Futures Live Projects

G&L Futures Live Projects provide students with real-world problem-solving challenges that are fully immersive and experiential by linking up with entrepreneurs and business leaders, our alumnae, and the wider community. The projects aim to help our students become the pioneers of the future who will make a positive difference to society and help solve some of the most critical problems facing humankind.

The first live projects were launched in 2022 as In-house Internships: pupils learnt from business leaders, experts and professionals ‘in-house’ at Godolphin and took part in ‘real-life’ analytical and problem-solving activities learning to collaborate, research, produce evidence-based ideas and solutions and develop their presentation skills.

We have now developed a range of courses that provide opportunities to work with content experts, community and business leaders and entrepreneurs, supported by teacher-led session.

Working with external organisation to solve pressing problems

It is wonderful to see the Godolphin girls engage with these issues so intelligently and to develop ideas that will resonate with other young people in the borough.

Our 2023 Bridge outreach programme included a joint venture between the G&L Futures programme and the LSE.
Over 60 Bridge students participated in a workshop to gain an insight into the world of entrepreneurship. Emily Tout, alumna of LSE Generate and founder of high-protein cheesecake business the Mighty Slice, tasked the Bridge students (with the help of their Godolphin Year 9 mentors) to create a compelling pitch of how she might grow her start-up over the next year. Pupils developed an understanding of the business and the market; developed their ideas and created their branding before developing a final pitch for the growth of Mighty Slice.

What I’d like to be in the future is a food journalist because we did a Mighty Slice course with the LSE and I found that really intriguing.
