What is an Alumni?
Alumni, or Alumnus, is a Latin term for a former member of a group, company, or organisation.
In the UK, Alumni Organisations tend to be groups made up of graduates from a university. Universities have tried to stay in touch with their graduates for a long time, often supporting them with events, networking opportunities and access to ongoing advice and support in one form or another.
Am I am Alumni?
Whether you qualify to be part of an Alumni Organisation will depend on whether you have been part of something that offers one. You will probably find details of your university Alumni Organisation on their website and some employers also run successful schemes.
We launched CACHE Alumni, our Professional Membership Network, to allow anyone with a CACHE Qualification, or anyone currently studying towards one, to join a Professional Membership Organisation which will offer support which is not only comparable to that from a University Alumni Scheme, but tailored to those who are working to make the lives of others better.
If you’ve ever studied with CACHE or have a CACHE qualification or NNEB, you’re qualified to join CACHE Alumni.
Why should I join an Alumni Organisation?
Alumni Organisations can be a great way to stay up to date with industry developments and to gain access to discounts, careers advice and support with starting a business.
Every Alumni Organisation or service is different so if you’re considering joining the one that’s relevant for you, it’s a good idea to speak to them directly to find out what joining entails.
We’d like CACHE Alumni to help those working in Health and Social Care, Early Years and Education to get all of the benefits that are widely available to Alumni, as well as access to sector specific support, like CPD opportunities, events, specialist careers information and regular articles from Sector Specialists.
Because we’re specific to the CACHE sector, CACHE Alumni can also provide tailored job support, hosting vacancies from our employer members and providing advice and guidance around CVs, Cover Letters and Interview Skills. We’ll even host events to offer support face to face.
