“The several seminars I have attended with Turning Point Consulting have provided excellent information and resources for me to take back and use in my job as a Careers Adviser. Meeting actual employers and finding out exactly what they want in their future employees, provides real work contact that is often difficult to get. I am also using Turning Point Consulting to work with my students on their subject selections this year as their program provides a very thorough approach to subject selection preparation.

Michelle Ibrahim, Careers Advisor,
