Following working in career guidance delivery and commissioning, Leigh led the initial development of the Guidance Council and the original version of the matrix Quality Standard. The common theme of his career, including more recent work on quality assurance, research, making use of cloud technologies and project evaluation across Europe, has been to seek the creation of demand led services rather than the episodic, interventionist and supply led models that currently exist.


Strategic developments in career guidance, advising national bodies, research, facilitating collaborative action between disparate organisations, developing innovative career guidance systems.
