IGNITE AMBITION THROUGH CREATIVITY AND PLAY
Proactive personal career coaching using creativity and play whilst supporting employers to diversify their workforce.
pRESPECT aims to empower talented underrepresented people in society to move into meaningful jobs by providing intensive personal career development courses. We use group workshops, one to one coaching, proactive employment preparation, employer engagement, and networking events to develop potential.
Confidence is increased when a person is valued, provided with equal access and given opportunities to work with guidance to progress to long term career choices.
We merge digital technology, practical work-readiness workshops and drama training to build confidence and resilience within a supportive network to provide paid placements and in-work aftercare.
pRESPECT will bring employers and prospects together to develop an actionable system that supports
and works towards increasing and improving diversity in the workforce, while understanding and breaking down the barriers to work.
pRESPECT is currently funded by the Scottish Government and Hunter Foundation SIP fund. It's working under the umbrella of the multi-award-winning AAI EmployAbility, where the candidate can access and apply for paid work with our support.
"pRESPECT has given me an enormous confidence boost in my job hunt. It’s hard to look for a job alone – having a group of peers that you can share your experiences with is amazing."
