Breda with former student Ahmed Almusawy at a Canons High School Careers Fair
As a former Careers & Business Links Manager with 10 years' experience in a London high school, I know that the quality of careers inspiration really can define the life chances of our young people, often providing the motivation needed for greater academic achievement.
But with a wealth of opportunity in today's job market, even the most motivated students can find career decisions daunting. That's why it's so important that the careers advice they receive is comprehensive, impartial and based on an understanding of a student's unique strengths and aspirations.
Working with students independently, and with schools and colleges, my aim is to improve the quality of the decisions students make about careers and courses, and help them develop the skills they will need to be successful in the work place - often referred to as employability skills.
