GOALS CEO, Philip Collett talks about how the GOALS programme is transforming probation services in the East Midlands with Leicestershire REACH Probation
GOALS UK is a Community Interest Company (CIC) and social enterprise with a proven track record of helping individuals and organisations to achieve successful outcomes, faster through innovative and highly motivational engagement training programmes.
GOALS is a unique, work-focused system that challenges the way people think, feel and behave. With over 22 years' experience, we understand that mindset and attitude are the single most important factors in moving people into positive and sustainable outcomes.
Integrating elements from a range of psychological interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), the psychology of employment, Motivational Interviewing and a healthy dose of 'common sense', GOALS transforms the hardest-to-enage individuals into motivated, resilient and work-ready candidates.
Low self-esteem and de-motivation are the commonalities facing many of those who are unemployed or underemployed. GOALS tackles head-on the core issues of welfare dependency, learned helplessness and low self-esteem. By identifying and overcoming the real barriers to employment, GOALS acts as a positive catalyst that dramatically speeds up the process of change in people's lives.
The GOALS core intervention ranges from a 1-3 day high impact course. We are now proud to offer a wide range of products and services including GRIT Job Coaching training to help staff leverage the benefits gained by candidates over their GOALS course, and how to work 1:1 with candidates going forward to maintain motivation, responsibility and commitment to achieving and sustaining long-term outcomes.
Alternatively, we will work with you to build a bespoke GOALS package to help with your specific organisational needs.
GOALS is both flexible and scaleable and with a reputation of excellence within DWP, strengthens provider bids.
GOALS for Young People is a motivational training programme that challenges young people to think and behave differently. The programme is designed for 14-19 year olds with a main focus on developing self-esteem and an overall sense of responsibility.
Working end-to-end with over 500 young offenders and NEETs in-house, we achieved over 70% positive outcomes into employment or education, with a 65% sustainment rate at 26 weeks.
GOALS provides a programme which is offered in prisons across the UK and has been running since 1990. The programme tackles the psychology of social exclusion with a key focus on building self-esteem, independence, inner strength, personal awareness and self-motivation.
Leicester REACH Probation services have just published a Case Study on the success they have achieved using GOALS:
Homelessness is a big problem facing our society. People who are without a home face multiple barriers and our motivational training programme helps individuals regain control of their lives, through finding their confidence, taking responsibility and planning for a brighter future.
GOALS offers a unique approach to tackling worklessness and benefit dependency among social tenants. We empower tenants to take personal responsibility for their tenancy, finances and future! GOALS for Housing and Homelessness leads to reduced rent arrears, sustained revenue, empowered residents and more aspirational communities.
GOALS has worked with many of the major providers on their contracts and as we move further into PBR schemes, genuine innovation is crucial. With mounting caseloads of candidates presenting with complex and multiple needs, staff need to be better equipped skills-wise and more resilient, personally, to really help people into sustainable employment and achieve great outcomes, faster.
Sustainable employment outcomes and long-term change require a fresh approach based on genuine customer/advisor relationships built on deep levels of trust, creating quality interventions and ultimately, giving people what they cannot give themselves.
Using elements of the most effective psychological interventions including CBT and NLP, GOALS for Health is a training programme which works on a practical level to a target-driven format. This unique programme has been tried and tested and proven to achieve positive results.
GOALS Business Coach and GOALS for Enterprise are programmes designed to help and support those looking to become self-employed.
