Real World Context
Krishan Puvvada, a sixth former, came to the Financial Times in summer 2016 with an idea. He saw an opportunity to use FT journalism to show the connections between the subjects sixth formers study and the world beyond school, to help them prepare for university and fulfilling professional careers.
The FT worked with Krishan, his peers and his school to refine the idea. Students want to be able to demonstrate in interviews that they are informed and confident on topics beyond the basic requirements of the curriculum. Universities and employers in turn confirmed that broader general knowledge helps differentiate the best candidates.
With the help of a panel of teachers, we will highlight and guide readers to FT journalism that can enrich senior school education and help prepare students for successful careers.
