The Network

The Network exists to support pupils, Young Old Foresters (YOFs) and Old Foresters (OFs) as they move into further education, the workplace, and simply for networking purposes.

We have two areas that support this our networking, mentoring and social media platform that is open to all members of the Forest Community, including parents, former parents, staff and alumni.

We also have Forest School LinkedIn group – again open to all members of the Forest Community.

Discover more in these two platforms about:

  • Our annual Network event
  • Professional support days and workshops for pupils
  • Mentoring
  • More internship opportunities for young OFs
  • A sign-up scheme for pupil work experience

Network Events

Our annual Networking evening provides OFs and current Forest parents with the opportunity to come together and forge links within the sector in which they work. This is held in central London and includes keynote speakers working in senior roles in the featured industry, while also providing an informal drinks evening allowing connections to be made and nurtured.
