The first wave of graduates will establish a formal DCGC Alumni Association, and alumni will be invited to formulate its constitution. Administrative support will be provided by the consortium and contact will be maintained through regular formal and informal events (e.g. involvement in training; an annual social event; a newsletter; a bulletin board; an email list and Facebook).
These contacts will be facilitated by an up-to-date database maintained by Kent and shared with the consortium members. The consortium will make available facilities for the association and organise an annual meeting, normally in tandem with a conference of the Common Study Programme. This association, building on the community established in the programme, will become a professional network in its own right and lead to enhanced employment opportunities for the graduates.
