Possibility: To examine their thinking about them self, others, situations and circumstances, enabling them to discover what’s available at work.
Responsibility: To see choices about work that empower their actions and behaviours rather than reacting to circumstances and situations; therefore taking ownership of their goals for employment.

“I’ve commissioned Graham to work with long term unemployed adults on many occasions over the last 12 years. He is much more than a highly skilled coach and trainer! He has a unique way of engaging with people, and is highly focused on supporting them to realise their goals through overcoming often deep-seated barriers. He is fun, dynamic, professional, highly effective and a real asset to anyone. Go hire him!”

From a participant:
“Dear Graham. I hope you don’t mind me saying hello. I was one of your ‘New Deal’ students. I had a rough time before the job centre got me the New Deal placement working for the council. I hated your sessions back then. I didn’t realise, or value, the importance of your sessions at the time. They geared me up for the world of work. Shortly after the course I got a job with the University, they paid my college and University fees. I am now waiting to be enrolled on my Masters. I’ve always wanted to say thank you.”
