Farewell Graduates. Welcome Alumni.

As we head toward the summer, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all students for their continued creative efforts, hard work, and determination as we approach the end of yet another academic year at Futureworks.

If you’re finishing your first year with us, I hope you have enjoyed your course. I look forward to welcoming you back in September to continue developing your skills, improving your knowledge, and exploring your creativity. To our second-year students, I’m excited to watch you evolve your talents further as you embark upon your final year and final projects – an exciting, intense, and rewarding time for both students and staff. Finally, it always amazes me how much our students grow in creative stature during their three years with us. The work I am seeing, hearing, and experiencing from third year students, across the school, as final projects are evaluated and graded, never ceases to astound me. I wish to pass on my heartfelt thanks to all students for your incredible efforts and outstanding course work.

For all graduating students, it is the end of three years of intensive, vocationally led, hands-on learning, and it is also the start of your new journey as you take the first steps toward a future career path. Some of you may be seeking employment or already have job offers in hand, and some of you may be continuing in education or starting a business of your own. All of you are welcome to call upon the support of our Alumni Resources as you head in the direction of your chosen career.

Futureworks Alumni Resources are here to support you as you embark on your professional journey. We offer a range of services, from short courses to keep your skills sharp, to regular careers newsletters and a dedicated LinkedIn Alumni Group for networking. Our facilities, support, and expert advice are always available to you. Additionally, we invite alumni to engage with our Industry Advisory Group, a collaboration between Futureworks and industry professionals, dedicated to ensuring our academic teachings remain industry-orientated and focused on supporting alumni working in the industry. Visit the Futureworks website for further information or email Industry Coordinator, Pete Jenkinson at [email protected]

To our returning students, I hope you have a restful and enjoyable summer break. We eagerly await your return in September, ready to continue supporting your educational journey. To our graduating students, I send you my best as you embark on a new direction in your life and creative career. May your progress be as rewarding and fulfilling as your time at Futureworks and we look forward to celebrating your success at the graduation ceremony later this year.
