OUR MISSION

Our mission is to empower minority ethnic and other marginalised people, through tailored personal and professional development, so they may gain sustainable, progressive employment.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

HOW WE DO THIS

We run online training programs leading to group workshops, one to one coaching, proactive employment preparation, employer engagement, wellbeing and networking events. Our process fuses our expertise in Acting, Public Communication, Wellbeing and Digital Technology.

All our live courses are tailored to the group and individuals booked into the sessions. The courses are run on our bespoke learning platform. Currently it is being used for closed programmes and sessions for the current cohort of Funded participants.

COMING SOON...

 

Free training:

Funded by the Scottish Government and Hunter Foundation SIP Fund, we are able to provide discretionary free training for qualifying participants.

 

Paid Subscriptions:

Options include student, yearly & monthly subscriptions as well as individual course purchases. Everyone in society is equal but some have more advantages. Career coaching, so far, has been a costly luxury available to those already benefiting from social inequalities enlarged over the last 35 years. Therefore, our contribution to levelling up is to make our courses affordable to more people and for at least 20% of paid-for subscriptions to fund our new Prespect charity, and extra-curricular resources, for the most disadvantaged members.

When Covid Restrictions Allow:

Masterclass, digital training workshops, other career development sessions and drop in support  will be run  in our  Edinburgh Hub and in partner hubs in Glasgow.

Limited spaces are free to those from marginalised groups, particularly Black and Minority Ethnic people. 

This offer is also open to Refugees and Migrants who work in low paid jobs or are unemployed with the right to work in the UK. Currently the course is delivered online making it easy to support a larger group of people. 

New Courses and Dates coming soon...

HOW WE WORK WITH BUSINESS

We create bespoke training programs for organisations looking to develop their talent’s confidence and effectiveness in their career progression. Don’t lose talented staff to your competitors. Instead, support them to progress with our workshops.
