Gill Frigerio is an experienced career development practitioner and manager who now works as a Principal Teaching Fellow in the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Warwick. Gill is Co-Director of Warwick’s MA in Career Development and Coaching Studies and is module leader on a number of modules within the programmes on Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education. Gill is also a Senior Fellow (SFHEA) of the Higher Education Academy.
Gill enjoys working with practitioners in higher education and beyond who are keen to consider how theoretical perspectives inform their work and can help them identify creative new ways to develop engaging provision. As examples, she has developed an online postgraduate award in career development which introduces students to contrasting theories as a way of developing their own views on and responses to career development. She has also chaired a collaborative project with some HEA funding to validate an inventory of Career Adapt-ability for use with UK HE students and to pilot its use in practice. Prior to moving into a teaching role in 2010, Gill was most recently Head of Careers at the University of Warwick.
Gill's wider teaching interests cover evaluating career development learning, theory and practice in career coaching; career, vocation and calling; women’s career development; learning from work experience and its contribution to career development; theoretical perspectives on employability and implications for policy and practice; placement design and management of higher education career and employability services.
