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
