"Welcome to our website": After our years in employment in career guidance services, both publicly-funded and private businesses, we decided in 2005 to set up on our own as a registered Partnership to offer professional advice and consultancy on education & skills.
We need to stress here that we offer professional services to organisations. We are not providers of face to face career guidance to individuals (although we have strong links with specialist careers advisory services, through our involvement with Careers England, the National Association for Educational Guidance for Adults, and the Institute of Career Guidance - as you'll see from our introductory pages eleswhere on this website).
The name we chose for our business Partnership came from our location – we live in the North Yorkshire village of Thrintoft, our home is the actual boundary of the village limits and was built on the outfield of the former boundary of the old village cricket pitch. Added to this, we are passionate cricket followers (as you'll also see when you view our introductory profiles in this small website). But our Partnership, sadly, isn’t a cricketing delivery Partnership!
So the name of our education and skills business Partnership chose itself, and our friends at Mosaique Design (of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire) readily arranged specially captured cricket-related photos for our new corporate image.
Our Partnership is registered for VAT – number 880 7537 93 – following our early trading figures exceeding the turnover threshold for mandatory registration.
Whilst we do have established daily rates for our advisory and consultancy services, we’re both always happy to discuss your requirements and to review with you how best we may be able to meet your needs within your budgetary resources.
This Home Page enables you to click links above to view introductions to each of us - which we have sought to make personal as well as fully professional. We hope that you find these helpful. As you'll see, from the top of this Page there's also a link to enable you to make direct contact with us.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Alison's work is often tailored advice to an organisation, or is linked to a quality award assessment - hence not easy to offer an example here on the site. Much of Paul's work is with private organisations too, but we have included on his page a link to some of his public work for Careers England and the Careers Profession Task Force..
In response to several requests about the kind of work we do which is beyond face to face advisory and consultancy for organisations (remembering that we do not offer 'careers advice' to individuals), we hope that - as an example of our work - you might find this web-link helpful:
Boundary Partnership Project Report (2009): Staff Development in Information, Advice and Guidance in Lifelong Learning Networks (LLNs)
This survey into Continuing Professional Development for Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) with the 30 Lifelong Learning Networks (LLNs) across England took place during the months of March-June 2009. Its primary focus was upon IAG (for learning and work) in post-16 learning and beyond, including embedded IAG, but its outcomes continue to have implications for all forms of IAG and thus for those setting national strategies and policies for IAG for all ages in the future, especially as the COALITION GOVERNMENT for the UK announced on 4.11.2010 the establishment of an all age CAREERS SERVICE for England phasing in from September 2011 and now fully live from April 2012 (known as "The National Careers Service", but with only on-line/telephone services for under 18s).
