Careers Advice Failing The State Sector

Dear Readers,

having read today’s article in the Evening Standard today about Careers Advice failing the state education sector in the UK, it struck me that perhaps portfolio workers could play a valuable role in proving to young people that there are alternative work options to the accepted norms.

Creating a generic Careers Service for all could have its benefits, but let’s hope they also encourage young people to look at a range of work options and not only force them down the route of a ‘socially acceptable” career. I pray that the new Careers Service proposed for creation next year will listen to creative thinkers such as Ken Robinson on the subject of preparing young people for their future.

They must embrace creativity, we are asking young people to prepare for a future career in an unknown world yet to happen, so they must be prepared for creativity and innovation.

Please describe your average working week. I’m very pleased to say there never is an ‘average’ week – they are always different. Most days involve some admin at home, usually looking very glam in my dressing gown and big dog slippers, some phone calls and a bit of CBBC for inspiration in my ‘breaks’. When I’m not home, I’m out meeting other performers, buying costume/prop items and, of course, earning money! Leading laughter workshops and performing in cabarets all over the country and Europe!

Oh, and I work in a nursery one day a week with little ones, all under three.  So my week really is spent with people of all ages.
