Janet ColledgeEducation Director/Company Secretary

Job Title: Careers education Consultant

Janet Colledge is the real life name of  @CareersDefender who is a  qualified teacher with over 15 years’ experience providing award winning careers education and 25 successful years teaching business studies in schools and colleges throughout London.  She adopted her tongue in cheek Twitter name after a particularly hard time convincing her school’s Senior Leadership Team of the value of careers education, something she passionately believes in.

After studying careers education at Cambridge University, she has spent her time as curriculum lead of careers and work related learning at schools in and around east London.  She has collaborated with a number of companies to improve their resources and is currently chief careers education consultant with Outstanding Careers, working with staff in various schools and organisations to improve the quality of their CEAIG provision.

She also blogs, presents and writes for various organisations specialising in the management and provision of CEIAG in the 11-19 sector and is a council member of The Careers Development Institute.
