As we walked towards the stage the compare said, “When they get on stage we’ll ask Second Chance Learning what makes them a diverse organisation.” As we walked up on stage she said, “No need to ask – we see it”.
The group of us who attended were symbolic of what SCLA is about – equipping individuals and organisations to improve outcomes for their clients and communities – second chance learners – anyone held back or set back by personal challenges, circumstances or environment.
The Bex Live group were representative of the fantastic network we are growing #MakingADifference. They are people who believe in what we are aiming to achieve, people who have supported our development, people who undertook the pilot equipped2succeed training the trainer in 2014/15 and have gone on to equip others to positively transform their lives, people who have benefited from equipped2succeed programmes and are now making a real difference for themselves and their communities.
Everyone asks, ‘So what does second chance learning do?’ (I know it’s not necessarily too clear from our website – always a work in progress!)
We license organisations and individuals to deliver equipped2succeed programmes for second chance learners. equipped2succeed is a tried and tested development programme that gives people the tools to attain and maintain wellbeing, thrive and achieve their goals:
- building positive mindset, confidence and belief;
- raising aspiration and increasing motivation;
- improving ability to effectively manage relationships,
- equipping people to take more responsibility and improve
personal, social, health and economic wellbeing;
- giving individuals the personal, learning and employability
capabilities to make the most of opportunities to train, gain
and retain volunteering and employment.
Take a few minutes to look at some of the incredible video testimonials from a few of the hundreds of people who have benefited from programmes trained equipped2succeed facilitators have delivered.
