The last few months have seen some interesting twists and turns for me personally but the good news is… I’m back!
As you know, writing about employability skills was not my main job and I spent my days busily delivering Hull’s Building Schools for the Future programme along side the great team at Esteem. Well now that the last of the schemes has been successfully handed over and my time with them came to an end, I decided to take some time out over the summer and spend some quality time with my family. As you can imagine, when you’re getting schools ready for the new academic year, summers are pretty much forgotten!
So whilst taking some time out to be a mum, I had plenty of time to think about my next move. Would I take on a similar role for another organisation? Well for me the answer was pretty simple. No. I had built up a great bank of contacts and having become recognised in the region for my work on the subject of employability skills, why not focus on that? So that’s where I am now. I’ve set up my new business which offers employability workshops and business consultancy focused on helping businesses to better interact with education providers.

What about Employability What? I hear you say, well sales are continuing slow and steady – there have even been a few more copies sold over in the USA.
I’ll be back soon – I promise!
