“It is the opinion of myself, students and other staff that Sarah has done an outstanding job with our students. Not only are they now clearer on their future options and career choices, but a high percentage reported that their motivation to do well in school has increased as a result. They were pretty unanimous in saying they found Sarah personable and interested in them as individuals and several students have requested follow up sessions. Overall, the work Sarah has done with them has exceeded our expectations, and we feel that it represents excellent value for money. As a result of this feedback, we intend to continue using Career Directions to offer our students independent, impartial guidance over the next academic year.” High School IAG Co-ordinator
