My name is Michelle Powell and I work with young people, their parents and the organisations that support them around their career planning and decision-making skills. I help them transition successfully to further education and employment. 

I am passionate about working with young people with additional support needs including, those at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment, or training), SEMH (social, emotional, and mental health needs), special educational needs, looked after children and young people not accessing other support services.
