Paulette supports the Orpheus learners in making informed educational and career choices. Paulette has vast experience in providing Independent, Impartial CEIAG (Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance) in a multitude of settings e.g. Mainstream Schools/ Special School Settings/ 6th Form and FE College/Community providers. Her experience also extends to working with NEET and those at Risk of becoming NEET and other vulnerable young people. Paulette has worked for a variety of career services, including the National Career Service and ESF projects. Working collaboratively, Paulette has worked in partnership with a number of Key Professionals to help secure positive outcomes. For young people, such steps have allowed them to transition into employment, training and educational placements. Paulette uses a variety of career software programmes and online tools to support the delivery of Careers Guidance interviews and increase LMI awareness.

Paulette has been able to make the learners aware of their opportunities and aspirational choices and involved parents/carer’s in their decision making while keeping the young person at the heart of all matters.
