How does it work?

The service works by connecting you with a qualified careers adviser with specialist knowledge of vision impairment. A session will be arranged which will focus on helping you to make the right moves towards your future career. You will explore pathways into specific jobs and careers in all sectors. The session will help to identify academic and vocational routes, subjects and qualifications so you can make informed choices on the road from school to college, university or employment; getting to where you want to be.

The service offers one session per student. We will consider an additional session if required on a case-by-case basis. The session(s) can take place via Zoom or over the telephone.

Who will deliver the session?

The session will be delivered by Michaela Ardley a level 6 qualified careers adviser with specialist knowledge of vision impairment. She is qualified to give information, advice and guidance to young people to help them make the right career choices.

What happens after the session?

A full set of notes recapping the session including relevant actions, information and links to resources will be produced and sent to you.

Three months after the session we will drop you a line to find out how you are getting on with any actions identified in your session and to see how things are with careers support locally.

Who is the service for?

The service is for blind or partially sighted students in years 10 to 13 attending mainstream schools and colleges in England.

We particularly want to reach those who have received very little or no specialist, impartial careers support from their school or college in the past year.
