Liz will be writing weekly blogs for Unifrog, the series of blogs aims to offer practical advice to teaching staff to support them to inspire their students to take an active role in their future progression. In a rapidly changing world, there are a growing number of exciting career routes available and sometimes the challenge can be motivating students to seize these opportunities.
The topics covered will include developing employability, post 18 choices and options, study abroad and the new initiatives which aim to encourage students to raise their aspirations.
This advice is based on the experience Liz has gained over 25 years working both as a Careers Adviser with local authorities and most recently as an Independent Careers Adviser working with sixth form students. In 1998, she decided to take a career break to help set up and establish Burts Potato Chips, but finding her passion continued to be people rather than potatoes, she returned to careers advice work! As a member of the Career Development Institute, she strives to keep up to date with developments in the field of Careers education, advice and guidance.
