Jo has over 10 years’ experience within the education sector and she is also qualified to deliver training and qualifications in the workplace.

Jo primarily offers guidance and transition planning to young people at Key Stage 3 and 4 on a 1:1 basis or more general careers guidance to groups and classes. She is especially interested in working with vulnerable young people who need additional support to progress, this being her main area of expertise. She also works with individuals between 16-25 who would like individual careers guidance to consider next steps or are unemployed and needing careers guidance.

Jo believes the key for a young person to make a successful transition into Post 16 learning or employment is to identify provision that is suitable for them so they feel comfortable and confident and fully understand the choices that they have made and how that links to their future. Her approach is flexible and person centred with the aim to support the individual to achieve their goals.  She is always aware of their needs and able to empathise with their past and present situation to look at ways to progress to a positive future.
