Organisations strive to enable all young people to be able to reach their true potential and young carers in particular often face challenges that hamper them from achieving this. They are typically unrecognised for the care that they give, unlike adult carers, who receive a carers allowance, and there is very little support available to them - we are one of only three young carers services in Birmingham, and the latest figures for the city show over 11,500 young carers. Frequently, young carers remain hidden, only being discovered when situations have reached crisis point, which often involve social services becoming more

Maintaining a human approach in the workplace was important for me as it made me realise that empathy and understanding your employees as human beings can bring great benefits. I now feel confident to conduct line management supervisions with my staff and empower their potential. The training I received has enabled me to support and develop the skills of my staff and give them the chance to self-reflect about their own progress and performance. I would say to any organisation which is considering using Space2think in a similar capacity, that they are very knowledgeable and dynamic.

The ability to practice coaching with extended feedback was invaluable. The group I was with brought amazing skills, energy and experience to the learning environment.

Rob & Andy created the ‘Space to Think’
Level 5 Coaching & Mentoring I was looking to gain an accreditation in coaching to validate the experience I have gained over the years in leadership roles. The fact this was an open course which included people from a variety of companies and backgrounds appealed as I was keen to hear of their experiences in the different sectors and organisations. Additionally, I felt the residential element of the course would allow me to focus fully on the learning experience rather than being pulled in to the distractions of daily life so this was a real plus point for me.
