Prerequisites: We include access to our Critical Thinking online program that must be completed in conjunction with our Ready Match Place online program. This is because we need our consultants to understand how to think in a non emotive way when assessing and assisting their clients.

Additional Services: When both the Critical Thinking and Ready Match Place programs are completed, we can organise additional face to face sessions via Zoom with Natalia, to further discuss placement practices to increase success and lessen placement anxiety. Please email for further information.
