Inside out training for schools

inside outI’m enjoying working with Blooming Genius (the education arm of Genius Within) to deliver the ‘Inside Out’ programme to schools in East Sussex.

‘Inside Out’ is a new approach to improving behaviour and reducing exclusions by empowering teaching staff and children alike towards solution-focused thinking and success.


The programme has been developed by a multi-disciplinary team of educators, psychologists and coaches and provides an innovative approach to working with young people, particularly those who exhibit challenging behaviours and neurodiverse profiles.

“Everyone should have a mentor”

This is what I was told when I asked a student why he had signed up for the University of Brighton’s Momentum mentoring programme.  I enjoyed the time I spent last year mentoring that student.  And I’m delighted to now be working with another student as she completes her studies and carves out a new career path.

Momentum is a programme which matches volunteer mentors with students to help them to build confidence and develop their employability skills.  I get so much enjoyment mentoring students through the programme – it’s a true partnership with benefits and learning flowing in both directions.

In the words of the great Oprah Winfrey:

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”
