SEC LinkedIn network reveals huge increase in people planning to enter education consultancy
Adam Caller explains how joining the SEC LinkedIn network is the first step for many planning to enter education consultancy, providing a measure of industry trends
By: Adam Caller
Adam Caller, Marketing Officer for the SEC, runs the LinkedIn network for the society. "There has been a significant increase in enquiries from people interested in joining the profession,"
When asked why the SEC LinkedIn group is open to non-members, Adam replied; "We generally find that if people are not yet education consultants, but are thinking of moving into that career, they like to connect on LinkedIn first, and then join the SEC when they become consultants. By talking to other members in the LinkedIn group they hear about the benefits, such as the weekly Exploratorium, and many members say that's worth more than the membership fee in the time saved by the document. I see the open LinkedIn group as a means to enable new education consultants to get to know us and what we offer before having to make a commitment, thereby helping everybody involved."

About the Society of Education Consultants
Formed in 1990, the Society of Education Consultants serves professionals working across the whole education and children's services spectrum. The range of SEC members encompasses consultants who work as individuals, in partnerships, or in association with larger consultancies or organisations. The SEC has two primary functions, the one of which is providing information and support to education consultants, meeting their professional and developmental needs at all stages of their education consultancy career. Members also have access to a comprehensive professional indemnity insurance scheme at preferential rates.
The second function of the SEC is to provide a one stop shop to individuals, education and children's services managers and governors, whether in schools, LEAs, higher education establishments, or other institutions looking for high quality professional help and support.
