Hello, my name is Julie Kay and I work alongside my colleague Claire Hurst, job sharing the role of Careers Adviser at Passmores Academy. As qualified careers advisers we provide impartial information advice and guidance (IAG) to all students empowering them to make informed choices, and motivating them to plan and manage their own futures. We also have a responsibility to organise work experience for our Year 10 students.
I have previously had 22 years’ experience of working within careers education advice and guidance both in Hampshire and in Essex as part of the Careers / Connexions services. I am passionate about the work I do and love working with young people. Whilst in Hampshire I qualified as a Careers Adviser and last year I upskilled to gain my Level 6 Diploma in Advice and Guidance.
Any students wishing to see the Careers Advisers can self-refer by either emailing us or completing a self-referral form kept in the resource centre. Parents are also welcome to contact us regarding any queries relating to information, advice and guidance or work experience, using the email link on the right of this page.
