ABOUT US

ABOUT  US

ACT Training Services is a social enterprise originally established in 2006 to provide training for people who were seeking to acquire skills in order to secure employment.


Over the years the organisation has accumulated vast experience conducting vocational and bespoke training programmes as well as inspirational training seminars and workshops, enabling its client groups to develop skills of value and build a foundation for optimum performance in the workplace and in the community at large.


We are extremely proud that having overseen the successful progression of our clients through a range of short courses in line with market requirements and client needs, we can confirm from feedback received that our company has successfully continued to excel and impact. In addition to the increased knowledge they acquire, our clients experience a sense of empowerment, rejuvenation of latent skills, motivation, improved self-esteem and increased self-confidence.

  • Long-term unemployed people
  • Carers of disabled children
  • People facing life challenges
  • People in entry level jobs
  • Ex-offenders
  • People in between jobs and seeking to progress in the workplace.
  • Individuals embarking on an entrepreneurship journey.

 

As a company we continue to innovate and adapt to the changing needs in society.  Through the development of our Pocket Learner educational resources we are providing training solutions for children with learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as their families and carers.  Please visit our Pocket Learner website for more information.

COACHING & TRAINING

Inspirational Coaching

All it takes is a little light to be shone on a situation and a whole new world can emerge.  It only takes a spark to get a fire going and a spark lit in a hot place will catch fire.  Our coaching sessions are designed to help you find that tiny spark that can light up your situation and make big things happen. 


In our inspirational coaching sessions we work with you to find answers so that you can find your way to a place of inspiration, total abandon and freedom to live the life you deserve. You leave with confidence ready to be who you really are, equipped with the tools to go shine your light in the world.


Our coaching sessions are held via Skype or Zoom and in some cases over the telephone. Where required and possible they can also be held face-to-face at our offices or at that the client's venue. 


Inspirational Workshops

Workshops  provide an opportunity to grasp concepts in a public forum but in a private manner.  These small groups host activities that enrich your experience and boost learning.


You will be able to use creative tools to find your way as well as learn from helping others find theirs.  The sessions are rewarding and eye-opening and are tailored to enable you to delve into areas where perhaps you have never dated to venture. 


You are welcome to attend one of our scheduled inspirational workshops or we can host one for your group.  Attendance will enable you to use tools that aid in creating more positivity in your life and help you to connect with your inner self to effect lasting change. 

Creative Problem Solving

Creative problem-solving (CPS) is the mental process of searching for an original, previously unknown solution to a problem.  The methodology attempts to  redefine problems and opportunities to come up with new responses and solutions which are not the traditional ways of arriving at solutions to the problems.


The ability to problem solve is a critical skill for people in leadership roles. This coaching on offer will give you the tools to approach problems in creative and innovative ways - and thus boost personal and organisational  performance.


The coaching can be provided on a one-to-one basis or in a group. The programme will enable you to understand the role of creativity and innovation in your work and it will challenge you to move outside of your comfort zone and to recognize the value of exploration.  You will be appreciate the importance of divergent thinking in order to generate diverse ideas, and to convey your understanding to others.
