Preston College has appointed a new manager to lead its advice service.Advertisement
Ian Fazackerley joins to take on the 15-strong advice and guidance team who work with students to help make career choices.
His team will be based in the new £3 million In-Zone building, which is going to the city council’s planning committee on Monday for approval.
Ian said: “Preston’s College has a great reputation for its IAG services and I’m proud to be joining such a talented and dedicated team.
“A recent OFSTED report found that many schools nationally weren’t adequately securing access to this type of guidance for all students in years 9 to 11, even though it has been their responsibility since 2012.
“By using a service such as the one we provide at Preston’s College, youngsters and adults alike can gain access to the best advice and support available and help them to plot out their future careers.”
Carl Speight, vice principal for enterprise and engagement at Preston’s College, said: “We’d like to welcome Ian to the College. We feel he brings with him a wealth of experience that will be of great benefit to all the learners who make use of the service.
“We feel that by offering young people as much help and advice as possible we can support them to make the right decisions for the future and remain committed to providing the best service possible to them.
“Providing oustanding careers information, advice and guidance is a further example of how we are making our learners the most employable they can be.”
