Safeguarding Behaviour Consultant
As a social enterprise, my aim is to ensure young or vulnerable people get the opportunities that may inspire them and change their lives. Whether this be through work experience, community work or apprenticeships. However many businesses have barriers and fears about working alongside them. At Colbe we aim to break down these barriers by giving confidence through simple behavioural changes so your team has the confidence to get on and be the inspiration that could change a life.
Being involved in community work is a proven way of increasing happiness at work and thus reducing staff turnover. Why not give it a try?
Using experiences in education we can offer behavioural management techniques, as good a project manager you may be, the thought of presenting to a group of thirty 7/10/14 years olds can be very daunting. Have you given your team the skills they need to do this?
- How do you stop the child tapping their pen and distracting everyone without creating a challenge/conflict situation?
- How do you save a session that is going wrong because it is too easy/difficult/boring?
If you have work experience students, do you have a specific plan for them that means you will not only reduce safeguarding risks but also mean that everybody knows where they are and what they are doing? Why no tie in the package to meet the national curriculum?
As a social enterprise, we promise to give at least 50% of our profits back to related causes, one aspect of this is to get female offenders into construction. Getting people from large construction companies to mentor and support inmates whilst still serving their sentences so that on release they can get work experience and hopefully even employment. Breaking the cycle and improving current and future lives.
