  • Supported university careers services by capacity building and providing on-demand careers coaching to placement students and undergraduates
  • We welcomed our newest member, Nicola Davenport, to the team
  • Commenced application screening for British Council English Language Assistants Programme – with up to 4,000 applications!
  • Began Safety Net with several universities
  • Ran 19 assessment centres for 968 students

Working with MMU

We ran assessment centres for over 2,000 students from across 14 degree programmes for Manchester Metropolitan University, hosted at the Etihad stadium.

Screening for the British Council

Established in 1905, the British Council’s English Language Assistants (ELA) programme is a major UK mobility initiative that offers paid teaching placements abroad, providing the perfect opportunity to travel, teach and gain invaluable experiences along the way.

We’ve been working with the British Council to screen just under 4,000 applications to the initiative, making sure that they get the best 2,500 English Language Assistants from the UK to support the teaching of English in 14 destinations around the world.

Welcoming Nicola aboard
