How Collège du Léman provides careers support to its students using Morrisby Profile.
The Collège du Léman was founded in 1960 by Swiss educators, Francis and Inge Clivaz. In 2015, Collège du Léman joined the Nord Anglia Education family of schools. Today the school provides an education for 1800 students from more than 100 nationalities.
Throughout middle and high school, students explore university and career options through visits from individual universities and the annual university fair, presentations and workshops on university preparation, a careers fair, and career exploration activities. The university advisors provide group workshops, individual meetings with students and offer parents information evenings and one-on-one meetings.
Mélanie Batey, University Advisor, had been thinking about introducing a psychometric test to best support students in identifying their strengths and interests to inform their choices and post-secondary potential for quite some time.
“After much research, I am glad I introduced Morrisby at Collège du Léman, at the time our cohort of students are making choices for their final two years of high school/sixth form and thus beyond.”
Morrisby has enabled students to confirm their preferences, investigate new ones and reassure the students who felt lost that there are many options out there. Morrisby helped show how they could match their strengths and preferences to areas in which they could thrive. Above all, it showed them that they have time to discover, go towards certain options and change their paths along the way.
The system enables members of staff to add to the purely academic data they had on students, to best advise on the options ahead.
Being able to involve parents in feedback sessions is also helpful for them to best support their children through options and decisions ahead, based on their identified strengths and preferences.
“The support the team at Morrisby offer schools is incredibly helpful and timely too!”
