Inspiring Progress CIC is passionate about empowering people
to lead a positive and confident life
In the early part of my professional career I worked as a recruitment consultant,
supporting young people aged 16 -24 into apprenticeships. I then moved into
Further education where I worked initially as a Learning Mentor and then trained
as a health and social care teacher, a role that involved supporting
a range of adults with varying needs, including supporting individuals with an
autism spectrum disorder and students with mental health needs
I have also worked with the long term unemployed, supporting and finding clients
sustainable employment. In 2013, Inspiring Progress secured a contract with the
department of work and pensions (The Job Centre) where we ran an intervention
that actively supported job seekers with ASD/social and communication
difficulties/mental health issues, into employment and apprenticeship positions.
Inspiring Progress has also worked with Watford Stop Gap , an organisation that
supported 16 - 25 yrs with ASD through a range of different programmes.
Inspiring Progress CIC delivered a social and communication skills
12 week training workshop with the aim of raising motivation
and confidence/self - esteem.
Our other recent training sessions are as follows:
Supporting SOC Skills for professionals working with ASD young people
`An introduction to Special Educational Needs` for trainee teaching assistants
Practical Communication for Professionals working with families of pre - school
children on the autism spectrum
SEN Awareness for education recruitment consultants
Inspiring Progress CIC also provides
ASD/social and communication skills training for parents/carers
Our one to one interventions have also empowered individuals
with ASD into employment.
I have received training in supporting people with Asperger Syndrome and learning
difficulties and I have also received NLP training. My complimentary skill to my
experience is that I am a qualified Image Consultant
Inspiring Progress CIC opens the door to social acceptance
and closes the door to social exclusion
