Amanda Byard - TrustCareers Adviser and Higher Education Lead I am a fully qualified Careers Adviser and Higher Education Lead. I have enjoyed working with young people for over thirty years. I will never forget the adults who made a difference to my life, when I was younger. In turn, I have always found it rewarding to be able to help people remove possible and real obstacles - in order to progress and achieve their potential, in life. I try my best to give young people information, advice and help so that they can make the best choices for them, as individuals. I like hearing young people’s thoughts and opinions: they are refreshing and keep me “thinking outside of my middle aged box”! After all, today’s younger generation are the future. Outside of work, my interests include Gym, Yoga and Walking: local, high level and long distance. I also enjoy relaxing at home and watching a good film after a tasty meal!
