About Danielle Prescott
|My trajectory has always been one that has been in parallel between Academia and Practice and although many think I could have chosen one over the other, my answer has always been that with both means you can do each job better. I need to work in sectors in which I teach so that I can pass on useful and relevant knowledge to students, and I need to know areas of development in academia that can inform practice. I worked hard to secure my positions in very male dominated environments and that is something I am very proud of and not only because it is an achievement for myself but because it shows others (females especially) that it is possible. My passion for Employability has allowed me to integrate this into elite sport and I can confidently say that most students over the past 15 years have benefited from this. The portfolio of students who I have taught over the past 15 years is one to be admired with former students placed in relevant sectors all over the world, some of which are in very high positions within their organisations.
