In April 2012 Mumba Kafula delivered a 3 day training course for our residents at the Powerhouse Foyer in Liverpool. The Powerhouse provides support to young people aged between 16 and 25 years. Our residents often lack the confidence to pursue their social, emotional, educational and financial goals and can find the prospect of moving forward in life daunting.
Mumba delivered a Confidence and Motivational Development Workshop to some of our young people who for various reasons did not want to engage in mainstream education. Mumba visited the service prior to the course and gained an understanding of some of the barriers to learning that our young people face. From there she tailored a course to specifically meet the needs of our residents.
In total six residents attended the course. The feedback at the end of each day was very positive. The residents really enjoyed Mumba’s training style and felt comfortable and valued. After the course the attendees were indeed motivated to approach new challenges and all said that Mumba was an inspirational trainer.
As a manager at the Foyer, I watched the attendees undergo a transformation and become more driven to follow their goals. I would recommend Mumba to deliver this course as she has the knowledge, skills and experience to deliver training which is candidate led and truly inspirational.
I look forward to working with Mumba again in the near future.
