LEH Governor Cathy Millis, who is a chartered FCIPD, is herself an LEH alumna, having attending both the Junior and Senior schools, before a 25 year career in HR. She now runs her own career coaching company called Fastforward.me.
Cathy says: “In these difficult times, we recognise there are many people in a state of limbo – maybe having left final year of university with no clear path of what to do next, or having been furloughed and unsure of future career prospects.
"So we are offering a free coaching consultation of 30 minutes to LEH alumnae to discuss their needs, with no obligation to purchase, to explore what challenges or opportunities they are facing. Additionally there is the opportunity to purchase the full programme for £150 but Fastforward.me will donate £50 of that to the LEH Bursary Fund or the Hardship Fund set up to support LEH families.”
17-18-year-olds with University decisions to make - linking subject choices to strengths and interests, scoping out potential industry fields to target at job fairs etc.
19–22-year-olds currently at University – thinking about future career options and industries to target.
19–25-year-olds currently in work - first jobbers, who might be asking themselves, have I made the right career choice? How do I sell myself better at interview? How can I create a good CV or LinkedIn profile?
The full programme comprises of four steps:-
All coaches at Fastforward.me are business people with proven skills and lived experience in the business world. The programme is designed to boost confidence by developing a stronger self -awareness and a deeper understanding of how strengths and development areas can impact on situations. In addition, the coaching conversations are an opportunity to solicit examples of skills, improve CV’s, personal statements and interview techniques.
The Fastforward.me programme cannot tell a young person what A levels to choose whether to go to university, or what job they should do, however it can, and will, provide insight into the natural strengths and challenge areas a young person has, and how they can benefit from a deeper understanding of them, as well as providing links and reasoning to some of the choices they are making or thinking of.
