Preeta Ramachandran and Mark Thompson and Aspire Participants, Department for Work and Pensions

Preeta Ramachandran and Mark Thompson and Aspire Participants

DWP’s purpose is to ensure social mobility opportunities for its customers; Preeta and Mark wanted to replicate the same development opportunities for their Work Coaches across the South East. Many colleagues join DWP straight from school, leading to a lack of confidence and self-limiting beliefs to progress to more senior roles. Participants in the Aspire programme have been encouraged to challenge self-imposed barriers to success and show confidence in their ability to communicate effectively. They have learned how to build a powerful personal brand and set challenging but achievable goals. Feedback has been extremely positive: participants say the programme has increased their confidence and sense of purpose, and many have a newfound confidence to seek progression opportunities.
