My name is Joanne Green and I work as a Careers Adviser at The Changing Education Group. We work in Partnership with  many schools and colleges across Cheshire. I will be visiting school every Tuesday, delivering advice and guidance meetings and producing individualised action plans for students. I can provide information, advice and guidance and explore ideas about post 16 options, subject choices, university and decision making around careers. I have been a qualified Careers Adviser for 17 years and during this time I have provided advice and guidance to young people and adults of all ages and have also worked in apprentice recruitment.

If you would like to arrange a Careers Meeting, please speak to Mrs Mullaney.
