“James has taught my son for a couple of years and then lead him in an internship towards a paid job before the end of the year. Which gave him the confidence and independence that wasn’t possible otherwise. James leadership and the team’s commitment has given these young adults a start in life which is in fact a dream coming true.”
“led by James and his team, is an innovative and effective programme to give young people with learning disabilities real and extended work experience. It is responsive to their needs and allows them to develop their independence but also offers them the support they need to grow and progress in the world of work. It has been instrumental in allowing my son to successfully make the often difficult transition from school to employment.” Parent
“James is committed to working with his interns to ensure they get the very best chance to secure paid employment. As a parent who has worked with him over the past year it is obvious that James really does believe that students with Special Needs are capable of achieving more than they believe is possible and ultimately are able to make a real contribution to society.” – Parent
“Through working closely with the interns he is proficient at identifying their individual strengths. He is accomplished at liaising with a number of departments/agencies to seek out appropriate work placements for each intern that match their skills. As the interns grow in confidence and experience he is adept at judging how quickly support can be withdrawn without jeopardising the outcome. Whilst having a number of worries both before and during the Project, James has always been available to listen and has been able to allay these concerns, often by simply describing actions he already had in place that addressed them. I would have no hesitation in recommending James”.
