Paul Loves his Careers Leaders Course

Paul Fennell is a Careers Leader and Year 9 Manager at King Egbert School, who is currently enrolled on Careers Leaders training, funded by the Careers and Enterprise provided by Futures for Business.

As a Careers Leader at King Egbert’s, Paul is responsible and accountable for the delivery of the school’s programme of careers advice and guidance. He provides a clear overview of the school’s careers provision to meet the eight Gatsby Benchmarks by the end of 2020.

“I have only recently completed an MA in Education (final year focused on careers provision, in particular employer encounters) and as such spent most of 2018 reading extensively on all things careers related and also attending university on a regular basis.

Everything related to this course has been nothing short of amazing; the hard copy resources are of an incredibly high standard and the online resources, e.g. assignment writing guide and support, are also genuinely great (better than I have accessed at university). The delivery style and knowledge, has been incredibly impressive. The feedback was very thorough and genuinely useful.

I have been absolutely buzzing about the course and careers provision in general (that's coming from someone who is very enthusiastic about it anyway!).


Myself and Zoe (also attending the course) attended a Sheffield CEIAG (Careers Education Information and Advice) Network meeting yesterday and pretty much told everyone that if they have not yet signed up for a Careers Leader course then they need to sign up with Futures! I have also been able to report back to senior staff in school about the quality of your provision.”
