The Kate Scheme

The Kate Scheme, our mentoring programme, was established to showcase the transformative effect of mentoring on young women’s careers and to build on the thriving relationship that exists between our alumnae and the School.

Women are under-represented at the highest level in most professions. Decision makers, influencers, entrepreneurs, directors, politicians – many of these roles are still dominated by men. The landscape is slowly changing, but this ongoing lack of representation sends a challenging message to our young women.

The Kate Scheme is our response to this challenge.

By harnessing the great wealth of life experience and expertise of our alumnae, we are in a position to support those who are just starting out in their careers and provide them with a positive message – and positive role models – regarding their career opportunities and advancement.

Getting advice and support from an experienced mentor has many benefits. It can introduce you to new ideas and insights, help you increase your network of contacts, and build your confidence as you build your career. It offers support from those best equipped to provide it, the previous generation of HelKats who have gone before you.
