SUPPORT FOR ORGANISATIONS IN THE CAREERS SECTOR

I offer a range of services, from training new careers advisers on behalf of careers advice companies, to helping to manage the quality assurance process.

A Career in Careers
“ I am much clearer on the wider opportunities that exist within the careers advice sector and how I might be able to access them."

THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ME
"Caroline is an inspiration to the girls at the school with her energy and positive approach. She has given them advice and practical experience to help them make the right decisions about their future. She has developed some innovative careers education events. I saw them grow over the years both in content and range of local businesses that she engaged. It was a great personal pleasure for me to be a regular volunteer working with her and the girls at the school at the careers days she organised."
Kate (Senior Talent Acquisition Partner and employer volunteer, Buckinghamshire)
HOW I HELP CAREERS ADVICE COMPANIES
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 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.
I know you are busy and probably working with associates, not Full-Time employees. So, I have designed some simple solutions, to help you map, train, and develop your talent pool, that won’t require a huge time or cash investment. 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.
"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 INDIVIDUAL CAREERS ADVISERS
Being self-employed can make accessing CPD (continuing professional development) incredibly challenging. The world of careers is changing quickly and so it’s more important than ever, to keep up to date with your knowledge and skills, in order to deliver high quality careers guidance. Without these, finding work for you, and supporting young people with the right help, is impossible. We have to get this right, especially when you consider that how successful these young people will be in the future, will determine the skills economy and success of us all. We've all heard examples of poor quality guidance sessions and we owe it to the profession to break the stereotypes and show careers guidance as the engaging, inspiring and modern practice it really should be.
As Advisers, we’re in this together, always learning. I can provide you with the information and skills you need, whether you’re just starting out in this wonderful sector, or a seasoned pro who wants to keep up to date. We talk a lot about supporting students by providing LMI, but we need to remember that an understanding of this for ourselves, is also important.
Through one to one coaching and guidance, as well as group training, you'll feel confident in your CPD plan and have that CPD quality mark of having invested in your own development, with which to impress future 'employers'. I can take you away from anxiety over your knowledge, skills and ability. Instead, you’ll be confident in securing, and delivering on, high quality careers contract work, even in such a tough market. This will not only support the young people with which you work, but provide a steady stream of revenue for you as well.
"As a new Career Coach I had learnt the basics of coaching but there was still so much to understand when it came to setting up my business, getting clients and understanding the wider career's sector. Caroline was a great help in getting me to a point I was happy with and was very personable".
