Overview of Support offered

Our engagement intervention can be delivered as a one-to-one or group offer and would utilise PS3’s/4, X-boxes, Wii’s console accessories such as steering wheels, small & large screens, laptops and a range of current off the shelf games that have been assessed & selected to draw our particular skills such as personal confidence, active listening & positive communication, motivation & leadership, negotiation & compromise, personal effectiveness, presentation, time & priorities management, working in teams and more.

The consoles are set up in way to ensure that soft skills are utilised, developed, reviewed and reinforced. The engagement sessions are key for the beneficiary to allow for comfort, assimilation to the group setting or to the commencement of their journey if it is a one-to-one offer. You will be familiar with game play in some fashion and these engagement sessions will reduce barriers to entry and draw on your previous experience.

These sessions are high octane, fun and augment soft skills in short sharp bursts whilst allowing beneficiaries to play in a softly structured environment overseen and delivered by our DBS/CRB certified facilitators.

Whether attending as a group or an individual, you will get to play on a range of current hardware and software and utilise skills you have (but may not know you have) and build towards a goal.

A single session (2 hours) will develop an insight and basic exposure to all soft skills, additional sessions will delve deeper and provide concentrated augmentation of skills sets.

We offer work placements within our interactive digital media company which allows you to get a full flavour of work based environments, try different departments and contribute to meaningful live projects under guidance. This enhances CV’s and shows prospective employers that you have experience and motivation.
