"Rosie Andrew has undertaken several commissions for the Centre for Career Management Skills (CCMS) at the University of Reading including a major evaluation of 22 CMS based curriculum development projects. This entailed interviewing academics and careers advisors, collecting source evidence and producing summary reports for dissemination across the wider higher education community. Throughout Rosie has brought her hall mark attention to detail and solid professionalism, allied with a wide ranging experience of CIEG in higher education, to bear on her work."
"Rosie has made a significant contribution to the technical content of the University of Reading’s Destinations® online career learning resource. She has drawn on her extensive experience of working within the FE and HE sectors to author web pages advising Foundation Degree students how to make the most of their student experience and progress from their programmes, as well as advising new entrants to HE on making a successful transition from school to university and encouraging them to develop their broader skills and experience during their studies. Rosie has been a real professional to work with."
"I would like to thank you for your help and support in encouraging me to continue with my NVQ. Although I love my job I was beginning to despair as my dyslexia was proving to be such a huge obstacle with the NVQ format. Thank you for "pitching in at my level" and explaining the paperwork to me in a way that was more simplistic without me feeling in any way de-skilled. I honestly don't think that I would have continued without your support."
"The help I received from Rosie was second to none. She saw me through the NVQ 4 IAG from start to finish and without her it would have been a very painful process! Sometimes the language bewildered me and not coming from a NVQ background it was all such new ground that it left me dazed and confused! She helped me to understand the process, what was expected of me and boosted my flagging confidence many times. I cannot thank her enough."
"Rosie was knowledgeable, providing a professional mix of challenge and support. She was superb and is now providing excellent support/challenge for members of my team, also undertaking the NVQ in Advice & Guidance."
"I am very grateful to Rosie for the tremendous support with my NVQ Level 4 in IAG. She geared her support towards meeting me where I was (confused!) and gently co-creating a straight forward and rational framework of bite-sized achievable work packages with negotiated deadlines. Communication with my assessor was easy and flexible in terms of type (phone, e mail and one-to one- meetings), time (to suit me) and venue (again to fit in with my schedule). The very fast feedback from work I submitted encouraged me to maintain focus and remain enthusiastic."
"Rosie guided us from start to finish on our matrix journey, without her experience and advice we would not have been able to implement the many changes we have made to training, procedures and documentation to help improve our company. This also led to Woodlands Training Services being nominated and gaining the prestigious matrix Excellence Award. We are indebted to Rosie for her help and support in planning our matrix journey and making us a much stronger company with increased professionalism and confidence to expand the business."
"The Assessor ensured that she understood our organisation. This was helped by her own background. Her comments for further development and improvement were very useful and will be looked at carefully with a view to implementation."
"The background, knowledge and ability of the Assessor were absolutely essential in making this a highly credible journey."
"Rosie was a fantastic support. Her knowledge of matrix and the guidance sector was invaluable to us in preparing for matrix. I would not hesitate to recommend her."
"Can I just add that we found the Assessor (Rosie Andrew) to be extremely professional and very pleasant to work with, both in organising the dates/schedule and during the 2 days of the accreditation."
"The matrix training day was well presented by an approachable consultant."
"It has been a useful and supportive service at a time when we were feeling unsure of how we might measure up against the matrix Standard."
"Just wanted to let you know we were successful in being re-accredited. Many thanks for your earlier assistance – I am sure we could not have done this well without your visit, which put us on the right track."
