Inspira offer careers information advice and guidance for both adults and young people.
Our mission is to give young people and adults the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential in work, life and society by offering a wide range of free services and programmes.
Inspira offers a weekday drop-in for young people, up to 18 years old, to gain careers information, advice and guidance, between 1pm - 5pm. We work in schools providing targeted Careers, Information, Advice and Guidance to young people predominantly from year 11 onwards.
We also deliver National Citizen Service for 15 - 17 year olds. This includes two residential programmes and delivery of a social action project as part of a team over the summer.
Adults from 18 years old can access our services and programmes including National Careers Service one to one and group appointments and bespoke pre employment programmes designed to assist people back into employment. We provide accredited vocational training alongside employability skills to enhance employment prospects for our customers.
Information sharing from MARAC enables us to identify the associated children and tailor our service. We will support the raising of aspirations of associated child victims through careers guidance and support any transition in learning as well as supporting adult victims to explore career ideas and develop employability skills.
We work with the most vulnerable young people, for example, young people with learning difficulties, looked after children and those at risk of NEET.
Actions from MARAC for Inspira can be meeting with the young person in school and ensuring that school are aware of the discussion.
Inspira's National careers Service contract can also help the adult victim by offering appointments to help with training or returning to work where appropriate.
