Professional Information


Impartiality and non-directional guidance

Guidance delivered is strictly impartial and independent. Discussions are not intended to influence students' choices in any way, but to help them to get a clearer view ahead, consider their options carefully, and to make their own well thought out choices for their future. Decisions about Sixth Form, college, university and career can have far reaching cost implications, and should be well-researched and discussed with family, educational providers, professional bodies, employers and others before a decision to proceed is reached.

Lizzie does not accept any financial or other inducements to encourage a student to apply to any particular university, institution or employer. She abides by the CDI Code of Ethics and the CIPD Code of Professional Conduct.
