EDUCATION & CAREERS

The S2S Education and Careers Consultancy provides advice to students who are currently in education, those who are returning to study, and to parents seeking guidance in relation to academic matters. Our extensive experience in this sector has enabled us to build key contacts and vital resources for the benefit of our clients. 

We offer the following services as part of our Education & Careers consultancy.

CAREERS CONSULTANCY

At S2S, we strongly believe that those wishing to progress towards their chosen career should be guided by specialists who have a thorough understanding of the requirements.

Our initial consultation involves a detailed one-to-one discussion of the student/individual’s needs. Parents or guardians are also invited to be part of this process as a proactive role on their part will prove to be highly beneficial. We believe that it is not always possible to accurately pinpoint one’s career path so we aim to provide sound advice which will allow our clients to channel themselves towards a path most suitable for them.

We will provide guidance in relation to application forms, CV preparation and interview techniques.
Consultancy charges are £50 per hour (minimum booking time is for one hour)

WORK EXPERIENCE

Work Experience plays a vital contribution towards UCAS applications as well as for someone who is yet undecided as to the career they wish to pursue. These decisions can have a major effect on one’s future and we at S2S are here to ensure that the right guidance is provided. Our growing list of professional contacts allows for us to place a student/client into their chosen field.

The industries from which we are able to source work experience include: Hospitals; GPs; Dental Practices; Law Firms; Insurance; IT; Accountancy; Graphic Design; Education; Architects and Property Developers. Please contact us for a list of other industries that are available or email us at workexperiencesourcing@step-2-success.com

The sourcing process consists of the following stages:

  1. Initial Consultation

  2. Letter of request to the relevant bodies (Preparation of CV and Covering Letter if required)

  3. CRB checks (additional fee payable) and reference requests from school/work

  4. Liaising on your behalf to search for and select a suitable organisation

  5. Application forms (if required)

  6. Confirmation and allocation of Work Experience

  7. Courtesy calls before and after Work Experience

The fixed cost for this service is £150 and is payable, in full, at the Initial Consultation. S2S guarantees to source your required work experience.

Please book an initial consultation to help us get started.

EDUCATION CONSULTANCY

We are able to recommend suitable schools and manage applications from the initial visit to accepting a place. We are able to assist parents during Open Days by advising and asking the key questions. This will ease the decision-making process and will lead to the most appropriate school being chosen for your child. This can be particularly helpful for students who have relocated to the U.K. We organise school visits, advise on entrance exams and, if required, are able to provide teaching materials and tutoring to prepare for these.

To understand what is best for the pupil or student, parents too are invited to the consultations. We review academic progress and then make recommendations about which schools would be most suitable. In addition to this, we advise on different academic options such as A Levels and the International Baccalaureate. We make recommendations about which GCSE, A Level or IB subjects should be studied in relation to university entrance. Our previous students who have successfully entered their first choice University are also available for a chat.

We read inspection reports and league table listings and check exam results by subject so we are aware of the relative subject strengths within the school. We talk to staff, listen to parents, and take note of staff changes. We regularly visit schools and are fully aware of their structure and their performance.

We have been offering our support to students who are home-schooled and they are able to benefit from all of the services we have available. The parents/guardians receive extensive material and guidance which aids their children at home.

Consultancy charges are £50 per hour (minimum booking time is for one hour)
