The lovely people at Careershifters asked me to take part of one of their information webinars this weekend which provides participants with the opportunity to learn more about the Careershifters Launchpad career change programme.
I took part in Launchpad in 2017 and can heartily recommend it for those willing to commit changing their career and circumstances. It requires an investment of time and there is a cost, but it is well worth it for those stuck in a career rut, who want to change things, but have no idea how. If you want to find out more, have a look by clicking the link above.
After 20 months of studying psychology with Liverpool University, I'm finally embarking on my dissertation. This represents the final stage of my MSc. My proposal should be approved within the next month which will be accompanied by an ethics approval.
After this, I can get started on the research, with the final deadline being in May 2020. The proposed project involves investigating how the father-child relationship influences the decision of students from a socio-economically deprived background to apply for and attend university. Hopefully it will be approved!
It's both exciting and daunting to arrive at this final phase, but I'm hoping that it will be a stimulating and rewarding experience.
