Careers Advantage

How the LVS Ascot Advantage benefits our students.

Students at LVS Ascot benefit from the shared experience and expertise of the whole LVS Ascot community.

  • Careers guidance, and the organisation of work experience, is delivered by Adviza, our careers guidance specialists.
  • The LVS Ascot WoW group, a group of like-minded LVS Ascot parents and staff, share their expertise and experience and offer mentoring, work experience and job opportunities.
  • Our Alumni share their experiences and progress after leaving LVS Ascot, to inspire students.

Working towards our shared goal to give LVS Ascot students the advantage, the LVS Ascot Careers Advantage programme gives careers guidance, advice, support and builds resilience to support LVS Ascot students when they take their next steps, whether those be into higher education, apprenticeships or straight into work and a career.

World of Work Inspiration

The WoW Group members have built successful careers and, in some cases, successful businesses.

They work in a range of industries and on their way to their current position have learned how to navigate a career path that can often be less that straightforward, how to stand out in a competitive job market and what they’re looking for when they interview.

Those who run their own successful businesses share their experience of getting started, the highs and lows and the advantages or disadvantages of working for yourself.

All are willing to highlight opportunities within their organisations to our LVS Ascot pupils.

Discussing World of Work matters is personally beneficial to parents too.  The combination of informal and formal business networking available by participating in the WoW Group meetings, sharing work related ideas, learning from each other and finding ways to collaborate is extremely valuable.

The WoW Group is open to any LVS Ascot Junior or Senior school mums or dads with business experience who want to contribute and network with other LVS Ascot parents in business. Help us bridge the gap between education and careers to inspire and support our children into the World of Work, and support each other along the way too.

Being a member of The WoW Group is an ideal way to support the school with your business / industry insights by attending WoW Group evening committee evenings. Make new local business contacts and get direct benefit for you or your business by or attending WoW Group business networking morning sessions.
