Debbie Kavanagh is a Lecturer in Health & Social Care at Kendal College and is positive about the broad range of opportunities that are available in the industry today. "The sense of reward and achievement from knowing that you’ve helped someone is a fantastic feeling and I consider myself to be in a privileged position to support students start their careers in this fascinating, unpredictable, but extremely rewarding sector."
