Radio day answering questions on the Graduate Talent Pool, an initiative developed by the Government to help recent graduates gain relevant work experience. Radio shows included: Heart FM, Sky News Radio, Colourful Radio, Express FM, Star FM, The Eye, Westside FM, Hayes FM plus a podcast.  In the accompanying press release I was quoted as:

Denise Taylor an occupational psychologist and life coach said: “Going into higher education at a later stage in life has become extremely popular however some still struggle to make the jump. Due to the current downturn, many people are taking time to reassessing their future career paths and how having the right education will enhance their chances of meeting their goals. As a result, I tend to find mature students are often much clearer on why they want to study and can get focused on their future career goals right away.”

Government, Radio Day

Radio day with David Lammy MP, discussing a new resource launched for mature students, bringing together for the first time the offerings of every University and Higher Education Institute in England for adult first-time entrants.
