Schools and colleges are now responsible for their students receiving impartial advice and guidance on their many educational and career options. Most schools and colleges do not have a resident expert and need to employ the services of an outside consultancy to guide them through the minefield of responsibilities they now have to their students. Schools are starting to be inspected by OFSTED to check if impartial advice and guidance is being provided and explain all the post 16 / post 18 options to young people.

Glyn Ellis of Your Careers Adviser has the knowledge and experience to help you develop or improve the quality of your careers education and guidance to students. You get over 25 year experience of careers guidance from a qualified professional. In addition, Glyn has managed large business and has experience of self employment. He holds a level 6 management qualification from the Chartered Management Institute. Regarded as an expert on careers issues Glyn has been regularly interviewed on Radio Leeds, Look North, Calendar, Radio 4, Radio 5 Live, National BBC News, Press Association, Real Radio and Capitol Radio.
