Greetings to all!

Let’s get acquainted, my name is Olga Sedletska, I live and work in London, I have been engaged in education in England and abroad for about 10 years. Thanks to the fact that I live in London, this allows me to constantly maintain a close connection with educational institutions in the UK, regularly visit schools and universities, exhibitions and conferences, follow the latest trends in the field of international education and career abroad.

In recent years, I have worked not only as someone engaged in helping with admissions and organizing programmes for children and adults abroad, but also as a career consultant in the UK. I completed the Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance Development course and received the corresponding qualification from the University of Cambridge Assessment Centre.

I am also an accredited professional who is part of the Single National UK Registry Career Development Institute (CDI), which brings together specialists in the field of career counselling in the UK. https://www.thecdi.net\/find-a-professional\/detail\/177644

The course was not only theoretical, although I studied career theories, how to work within the framework of professional counselling with clients who need career guidance, assistance with drawing up a career promotion strategy regardless of the initial position, identifying strengths and weaknesses, correct positioning and career change strategies.

The most important thing I have acquired, is a deeper understanding of the UK labour market, its structure and the necessary accreditations to start working for local and foreign workers, I have learned about the requirements and trends of the labour market, have access to resources that can help people make the right choice when planning their education in the UK and subsequent employment.

Who can I help?

  • Parents and Students aged 19-22 years,

who also need assistance in career guidance and individual advice on finding the most suitable professions due to the fact that the studies started in their country are not suitable for a number of reasons and the student is looking for an opportunity to transfer to a foreign university. In this category, I am also approached by students who are finishing a bachelor’s degree at home, but they dream of starting to work abroad and are looking for master’s degree opportunities. In such consultations, we discuss the most promising career sectors, and how the education received can relate to foreign and other issues.

  • Adults 25-30 years old,

who do not know the foreign labour market, in particular the British, and want to understand what additional accreditations may be needed to start working, whether they need to get additional education, what salaries and requirements are necessary for obtaining a work visa, in which industry it is easier to get a job, and where to start their job search in the UK and abroad. I am also approached by people who need career guidance or help with drawing up a strategy for admission to prestigious universities, because they want to change their careers and dream of making this transition with the help of a British diploma.

As part of these consultations, we also help to create a resume and write a cover letter in English, set up LinkedIn to make it work for you as a job seeker, and organise lessons with UK teachers to prepare for an interview with an employer and get a coveted job offer in the UK or abroad.

Testimonials

In connection with the changes to the immigration rules in the UK, I am increasingly approached by people who want to learn about the possibilities of studying for a master’s degree, the requirements for obtaining a subsequent work visa, as well as assessing the possibility of moving with their whole family and subsequent immigration.

 As some people want to consider all the available options, I conduct such consultations together with a licensed immigration lawyer.

I wish to tell you about one such consultation which took place recently:

  • I was contacted by a woman with this question

“My children and I are nokarier_otzw living in Egypt, my husband is Egyptian. He works for an American contract company in Egypt. At the end of the contract, he plans to search for work in the US, UK or EU countries. But this requires a visa. English is only his second language (Arabic native). Is it possible to study on a study visa and find a job. Or maybe there are some other recommendations.’

  • I asked for the husband’s resume, his diplomas, about their main goals and objectives, in order to assess the situation in general and determine the opportunities for teaching the children in a new country.
  • The difficulty in such appeals is always to assess previous experience and establish whether additional qualifications or work permits are needed in a particular specialty, which I did with an emphasis on the UK.
  • In addition, we discussed the possibilities of coming not only via a work visa, but also through the student path with learning options for children.
  • After our consultation, the family had a clear picture:
  • Theadvantages/disadvantages of a work visa versus a student visa,
  • The potential costs for each of the paths,
  • Received a list of sites where they could look for work,
  • Gained a clear understanding of what it takes to get started in terms of qualifications and work experience.
  • I was pleased at the end to receive feedback, which I share with you

‘Olga, thank you very much. We received answers to all current questions and received more information than we expected. (I think there will be more questions), perhaps we will again organize a meeting with you. It was very helpful and informative, thank you!’
