Careers Guidance Services
We offer career guidance to students and young people who may need guidance or advice about their career direction. We are an independent company and so we seek to act impartially and confidentially to all our clients. We focus our work in the West Kent and Sussex area to include Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Crowborough, Heathfield, Wadhurst and Sevenoaks areas. We work with students as young as 14 or younger (depending on the context) and up to graduates needing further support with the career plans or looking for a change of direction. Our guidance activities do include access to a range of our own resources. Our interviews can be conducted at home or in a coffee shop other location of your choosing. We have DBS clearance for working with young people. We also offer an online skype interview if required.
Our interview process involves an initial assessment of the students, young person's background and educational achievement. We discuss career ideas to date and interest areas. Each interview concludes with some action plans for both us and the client. This may include the assessments tests below as well as a written report from each interview. We recommend a minimum of two sessions. We also interview using construct theory that explores the way we view the world. Find out more here.
We offer a range of assessments designed to help students discover more about their skills, qualities and personality We cover a range of well known tests designed by us for students and young people. All our assessments are completed online and students are given feedback during their interview process.
