Parliamentary Review Podcast!

Parliamentary Review Podcast!

One of Futureworks NY co-founders, Michelle Padron-Kitching has appeared in a Leaders Council podcast alongside Lord Blunkett.

The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.

Michelle was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Lord Blunkett. Host Scott Challinor asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.

Scott Challinor commented, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.’

Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Scott Challinor is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’

Action Towards Inclusion at Futureworks NY

Action Towards Inclusion at Futureworks NY

Here at Futurework NY, we have places available with the Action Towards Inclusion (ATI) programme specifically designed for those out of work and economically inactive adults aged 18 and over who are looking at getting back into work, training and education.

We also provide Maths and English qualification sessions every Tuesday morning 9:30am to 12noon.

We understand that sometimes people need additional support and encouragement and offer one to one support sessions to overcome barriers and reduce isolation to improve outcomes tailored to each individual person. Learners are supported with every step of their journey to help them move forward and become happier and healthier. We have a dedicated ATI team to help build skills and knowledge for a brighter future.

ATI funding

Action Towards Inclusion is a project which is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund and is managed by Your Consortium based in Knaresborough.  The work on the ground is undertaken by key workers and specialist intervention partners through a range of organisations in the voluntary and community sector.

Anyone interested in the ATI programme can give the team a call on 01723 449616 or email Virginia at virginia.dobson@futureworksny.co.uk
