Caroline has been supporting me develop an L&D plan for my Careers Guidance business. She has helped me ascertain my aims with training and developing my associate staff. She has put together a series of activities that will not only help us concretely identify the skills and knowledge standards we want the team to develop, but also, CPD activities that will help us achieve the standards.
Caroline has a unique perspective understanding and considering all aspects of what it takes to get buy-in from both staff and senior leadership, so everyone can work together with the same motivation and effort.
She is available for quick chats when I have needed to bounce off ideas, and her background in coaching and careers guidance means she is supportive and proactive when considering business development challenges.
I would highly recommend Caroline.

HOW I SUPPORT CAREERS ADVICE COMPANIES
Training, mentoring, and advising, ensuring students have the correct access to advice and guidance about their futures from fully trained Career Professionals.
As a business, you rely on the quality of the provision of your advisers. It matters to you, the schools you sell your service to and the young people you support. You need a pool of talented advisers, who you feel confident meet your standards, in order to meet the demand for work.
I was not given good CEIAG at school and so I know how important it is we get this right. But I also know how hard it can be to keep up to date with knowledge and skills in a fast-paced environment, and training others can be challenging too.
But where reputation is everything, it can take only one poor guidance session to tarnish your company's image (and sales) for good.
HOW EXACTLY DO I HELP?

I can help you move from being frustrated and worried about not fulfilling orders, to confidently focusing on your strategic plans, knowing you have a strong talent pool to support the operational work.

And most importantly, I understand how demanding employees can be over their development and how curcial it is to manage expectations vs employee morale and budgets, so we can co-design a solution that best works for you, rather than just 'off the shelf' solutions you might find with large training organisations.
