Ways to Work
We are currently working on a two-year project (‘Ways to Work’) designed to help 190 young people who are NEET (not in employment, education or training). The project is part supported by the UK Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020 and the Youth Employment Initiative. The total funding we will receive over the 2 years is £355,000. The project started in July 2016 and so far we have registered and helped 47 young people, 14 of whom are now no longer NEET.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Systemic Modelling?
Systemic Modelling is an approach for supporting groups to use clean questions and metaphor models to better understand one another and to develop the skills and capability to collaborate meaningfully. A Systemic Modelling facilitator, having established an overall outcome for the process, introduces a series of engaging exercises and simple tools to encourage the group to develop metaphor models and to explore the differences between them. During the initial process the facilitator detects patterns in individuals within the group as well as patterns in the dynamic across the group. The facilitator keeps track of those patterns that are aligned with the outcomes of the group and those that are incongruent. The facilitator encourages the group to detect patterns in one another and to bring assumptions to one another’s attention. Systemic Modelling was created by Caitlin Walker; after working with and observing David Grove, the creator of Clean Language. Caitlin combined David’s ideas with models from transactional analysis, systems thinking and NLP to produce an approach for facilitating groups to make the most of the individuals within them.
Can I book a demonstration of Systemic Modelling for my team?
Yes - many people are intrigued by this methodology and yet find it difficult to imagine what we do in practice. We are happy to come and do a 90-minute demonstration of the methodology, free of charge, apart from our expenses. We have associates who are able to deliver this work (and therefore a demonstration) in London, the North West, South West and on the South Coast. We can adapt the activities we use to suit your team. We are also available to give demonstrations and workshops at conferences.
