Richard Gerver Author & Head Teacher of the Year
Panjango is a really dynamic organisation pushing the boundaries of career learning within and beyond the classroom. Panjango is fun and lively, with a strong theoretical base supporting innovative approaches to lifelong career development.
Dr. Deirdre Hughes OBE Chair, National Careers Council, England (2012-2014)
Panjango is a colourful and attractive resource. The interface is deceptively simple, allowing students of all ages to explore career options with independence. The activities and tasks allow for a range of approaches and make the resource relevant to all areas of the curriculum. Thoroughly recommended.
Daniel O’Farrell Head of English, St. Mary’s College
