Pathways to Property aims to attract London students to a career in real estate
Teachers from around London have attended an evening at the Shard to promote ‘Pathways to Property’, run by the Reading Real Estate Foundation and supported by British Land, The Sutton Trust, and other real estate firms.
Over 70 teachers met with industry professionals and academics from the University of Reading to learn about where a career in property can take their students.
Pathways to Property hosts an all-expenses paid Summer School, work experience and a mentoring programme for Year 12 students from state school and colleges to encourage those from socially diverse backgrounds to think about studying and working in real estate.
Robert Milne, headmaster at the London Academy of Excellence says: “The reception at the Shard was an excellent opportunity for schools and colleges to find out more about the summer school, not only from the Reading Real Estate Foundation itself but also from each other.
“Five London Academy of Excellence students took part last summer, and I shared with colleagues at the event how beneficial the experience had been for them. They developed new skills through the range of stimulating and fun activities, and their knowledge about this area of academic study and further employment increased hugely. A seed of a career path has definitely been sown in each of them."
