‘‘I have been consistently impressed with Kelly’s attitude towards her work and performance on the job. Her interpersonal and communication skills are exceptional, together with her outstanding analytical skills which she uses to diagnose problems and develop viable solutions. Kelly has a wonderful rapport with people of all ages and naturally connects with learners. Kelly is extremely organized, hard working, reliable and motivated. One of her best qualities is her positive attitude, which is infectious. Kelly has a genuine warmth and kindness which makes students feel very comfortable and relaxed. She is equally effective when working one to one or with groups, delivering presentations that inspire’’.
Rosheen Hucker, Former Manager of Learner Services, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College
‘‘I had the pleasure of working with Kelly on a research project spanning the fields of education and social psychology for a period of roughly six months. I was continually impressed by her work ethic. Kelly conscientiously and reliably carried out all tasks to a high standard, and actively sought out further ways she could be of assistance. Her positive manner, critical thinking, and flexibility have been a real asset to the project. I genuinely look forward to maintaining a professional relationship with Kelly in the future’’.
Dr Jaysan Charlesford – Lecturer in Psychology, University of Plymouth
“Kelly Burns successfully completed her Post Graduate Diploma in Career Guidance with Distinction in 2011 at the University of the West of England. I was the Programme Leader and her academic/personal tutor.
Kelly has had a wide experience of health, educational and support roles and has consistently maintained a very strong belief in the power of education to liberate individuals to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. Testament to her motivation has been her commitment to improving her own understanding and skillset through a range of related further study.
Whilst with us she demonstrated a strong capacity to work independently but also to network and work very productively with others. Kelly has strong, highly attuned communication skills demonstrated clearly in her career counseling skills and also in her ability to respond to different audiences. When I think of her, I recall the response of a room of guidance professionals after her presentation on time and energy management. We all felt valued, deeply personally effected, challenged and powerfully inspired.
Despite part time attendance, Kelly quickly became one of the most popular and respected students with both peers and tutors. She was receptive and supportive of others, a stimulating sensitive contributor to the group and a serene, cheerful, generous colleague.
Then, and over the years since when I’ve heard other speak of Kelly the word most commonly used is ‘inspirational’.
I cannot recommend her more strongly to you”.
