Name: Mary Stokoe
Work History: I have worked at Derwentside College for over ten years in various student support roles, before that I worked for a service which offered information, advice and guidance on a range of issues from careers to homelessness.
After taking qualifications to specialise in Careers Advice and Guidance I joined the Careers Department at the college.
Motivation: I love working with people and helping them to plan for their futures—sometimes helping them to achieve things that they never thought they could.
Ambition: To continue to help learners work towards achieving their ambitions and prepare themselves for a career that they enjoy.
