Collaborative Programme Development

Assisting people in enjoying their working lives since 2009

We operate within the creative industries in the UK, working with adults and young people. Our area of expertise is in employability and enterprise career development. We support people in being work ready following long or short periods excluded from the work economy. By offering training to enhance life skills and enable the ability to make informed career choices, our aim is to provide a service user led pathway back into sustainable employment, self-employment or small business start-up.

Participants from Career Orienteer, a collaboration with Octopus Community Network:

 ~ I am very, very happy to be on the course. You gave me more confidence.

~ I am happy to finish my course. I am happy for everyone in the class. Thank you for the opportunity.

~ Giving thanks for the blessings of the coach and the support she has given. Hope they can give this to other generations.

We work alongside existing provision with support from Job Centre Plus, DWP, local authority parent and welfare services, children’s centres and social enterprise organisations. The results we achieve include, evidence of greatly improved career prospects, with a focus on the transition of people from a dependency on the welfare state to financial self-sufficiency.

Participant from FUSE programme, a collaboration with Centa Business Services:

The one-to-one sessions gave me a chance to reflect with a metaphorical mirror. I was given full complete answers with practical reasoning to support her point of view. Again very similar to group sessions, Esther applied a light structure approach and gave me the floor to express myself without stifling or dominating our engagement. Life Coaching regarding your business is a great concept to discuss your fears and find solutions, something Esther performs very well in her role. Dwauen Ackerman, Trainer

Working with these groups alongside a business coach in some instances, has produced excellent and interesting results, which has seen clients embark on successful self-employment careers and full time jobs.
