“Having used the services of Directions for a few years now, we are incredibly pleased with the organisation as a whole and in particular our careers adviser, Emma.  As an organisation, Directions is incredibly professional, and they are always on hand to support the school in any way they can.  Emma has become an integral part of our school and is well known and respected by our students and staff.  She provides excellent support and guidance to our students through guidance interviews and plays a key role at many school events.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Directions as an impartial IAG provider.”

“I arrange the Careers Interviews for Shenfield High School students. We love Emma’s ‘can do attitude’.  Emma has become respected by our students and staff, word has got round over the years Emma has been with us and students actually ask to see her as they know they will get something from their interview that will really help towards their future decisions.” #WeLoveDirections
