Sally Land

Trust Leader for Careers Education

Postgraduate Certificate in Human Resources Management, University of Derby / Postgraduate Certificate in Careers Guidance, Nottingham Trent University

“Our Trust Careers Programmes create opportunities and encounters designed to develop work-based skills required for lifelong learning.”

Following graduation, I worked for Boots for 13 years in store and regional roles. Due to my extensive work experience at managerial level, I was accepted to study for a postgraduate HR qualification at the University of Derby. In 2017, I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in Careers Education and joined the de Ferrers Academy the same year.

I started as the Academy’s Careers Advisor, progressing to Careers Leader in 2018, responsible for the Academy’s Careers Strategic Plan and Careers Programme. In January 2020, I became Trust Leader for Careers Education, where I enjoy working with other Trust careers professionals on a number of initiatives, including introducing and sharing best practices across the Trust and engaging with employers.
