Launchpad Programme - January 2022
“Before joining the launchpad programme, I was really overwhelmed and stressed about what I should do with my future. I honestly had no idea where to start or much confidence. Sydney's support, guidance and mentorship has been invaluable. I feel so much more confident in my abilities and future prospects and am now pursuing an exciting career path I hadn't even considered before!"
LAUNCHPAD CAREER COACHING
Launchpad Career Coaching provides students with the guidance to help them understand their strengths, how the landscape is shifting and most importantly, how students/recent graduates should adapt and position themselves for success. We answer the question: 'What is next and how does this fit into the vision I have for my future?'
Each programme is delivered via a series of 1-2-1 online zoom calls and does not focus on spitting out a generic career title based on 2D analysis of an individual. The primary objective is to give the student a 'toolkit' they can lean on for the rest of their career and an understanding of how they plan to fulfil their purpose and adapt in a rapidly evolving world.
Launchpad and Compass programmes are delivered by Sydney Samuels, who after studying English and Philosophy at the University of Sheffield graduated into an investment banking graduate scheme. She then worked in the Fin-Tech/start-up space before launching her own business helping diverse entry-level candidates access career opportunities. She is also on the board of the Careers and Enterprise Company's Youth Advisory Group as deputy chair; helping to steer and improve careers education at schools across England. She has also mentored students across multiple disciplines for over 5 years.
