Knowsley - Wednesday 25th November. Knowsley Youth Mutual (KYM) proudly received ten licensees for Total Commitment Training by PDP, personal development specialists and educationalists.
When asked why KYM decided to embark upon the Total Commitment Training, Patricia Jackson, Business Development of KYM stated, “We have faced a number of challenges this last year from when we changed from being part of the local council to a mutual. By including Total Commitment Training into our portfolio, we are able to offer a new approach to all our schools throughout the region”. Patricia continues, “Moreover, we want to invest in our high-trained staff for them to diversify their portfolio as well”.
Paul Oginsky, Chief Executive of PDP comments, “We created tct to provide a structured, engaging approach to personal and social development. Comprising 18 hours of interactive training, participants move through the four phases to ensure they grow their self-awareness, focus and ambition to build on relationships, resilience and refection.” Paul continues, “We are proud of the commitment KYM has shown, and are delighted to be able to license their staff for tct.”
Gill Kirby from Knowsley Virtual School, also qualified from the tct training and states, “We work closely with KYM and Alex Roper our head teacher decided that we ought to embark upon the training to help children on the fringes as a preventative measure.” Continuing on, Gill says, “We want to offer creative ways to work with children in order to be able to support and guide them back on track to improve their lives. tct gives us ideal tools to achieve this.”
PDP rebranded earlier this year from Personal Development Point to launch their new Total Commitment Training. Other companies which have benefitted from this fresh approach include Dame Kelly Holmes Trust (Young people not in education, employment or training), Inspira Cumbria (Long term unemployed adults), Leicestershire council (Supporting Leicestershire Families) and Liverpool John Moores University.
Successful licensees from KYM are: Lyn Pye, Colin Scicluna, Maxine Ellis, Matty Donnelly, Rachael McGowan, Billy Randles, Molly Ryder, Ste Blackhurst, Gill Kirby (Attendance Support Officer) and Patricia Jackson.
