How we will achieve this

Using a holistic based coaching technique we can identify and resolve negative influences and break down personal barriers incorporating the introductory industry skill courses as a softer approach.

We allow the students to work on one another allowing the individual to develop self worth / self confidence and good well being as well as learning a new skill set.

Using our unique approach and specialised technique in a relaxed / safe environment we can gain / raise the individuals' confidence and help to change their perspectives.

Facilitate individuals to see their own potential highlighting strengths and weaknesses.

By attending our programme we encourage students to break their negative behaviour cycles and reassess themselves in a positive manner.

By introducing students to others who have had a similar life style encourages them to open up and discuss / support each other in a safe environment allowing them to break negative old routines.

We raise aspiration levels allowing the individuals' new opportunities that they felt previously out of reach due to financial status or low skill levels.

All our team are committed to raising the awareness of the importance of self belief, by enabling those on the programme to be the best they can be.

Using our personal finance advisor to help individuals to complete income and expenditure spreadsheets allowing them to better manage their financial situation.

We have a basic skills tutor who can help with numeracy and literacy during the programme.

We believe everybody can fulfil their potential - we will run marketing / business / web design / design (logo business branding) workshops.

Why do we feel this is needed?

ur programme has been created as a result of both business research and our practical experience in this field. We feel that a stepping stone route concentrating on the outside as well as the inside in a therapeutic environment is vital when working with vulnerable people and helping to turn their lives around.

Most personal development / employment programmes realistically do not work for everyone. These courses available are not flexible in terms of suiting certain types of individuals needs.

The current courses available are not tailored to meet the needs of people who present challenging behaviour.

From our research we have found that previously mentioned groups need a different approach getting them into employment or training them for a specified career.

By showing them different aspects of employment and self employment we enable the individual to look further ahead in relation to their goals, we raise aspiration levels, showing the individual we believe in them and that they too can start to believe in themselves. It is all about broadening their horizons and letting them realise their potential, helping them to seek to improve their life, giving them something to positively focus on help them to fully develop as well rounded individuals in society.

Society needs to Invest in those who are currently not yet living independently. Our specialist programme is aimed to tackle all of the barriers to meaningful and long term employment. Our programme is inclusive and real. We are looking for outcomes that mean people have the chance to succeed and live a happy and meaningful life.
