Under the Microscope! – GT16 Associates Evaluation of their Holistic Week!


The Holistic Week is a time for all the Associates to get together and catch-up with each other, to relax and nurture themselves and reflect on their achievements so far as well as learn some new skills.


We cover diverse subjects including the global Mental Health First Aider’s qualification, personal everyday finance, nutrition on a budget, waste & recycling – why it’s so important to employers, art appreciation as well as sketch techniques.  We also cover miscellaneous subjects such as Hippy Dippy, kitchen essentials, housing etc.  So a full on week!


What were some of the Associates thoughts?……….


‘Mental Health First Aid is brilliant.  Apart from the qualification it teaches you so much that you should be aware off”

‘I have a new outlook on people with Mental Health issues having done the Mental Health First Aider course’

‘I learnt some great tips from the finance workshop’

‘The nutrition workshop gave excellent advice on how to eat well for less’

‘I learnt how important sleep is and am now sleeping more as a result’

‘The Waste & Recycling workshop was an eye opener for me’.


‘I learnt I could draw on the art workshop’.


‘Doing the gallery visit with other Associates was fun and different.  It was so relaxing to draw’.


All agreed if they could go back to the beginning, they would still do Growing Talent!


‘I would highly recommend Growing Talent to anyone who wants a start’


‘I’ve very much enjoyed being part of this journey and I think Growing Talent is great’!


In the final stages of their journey back to employment, we know all the Growing Talent Associates will do incredibly well.  What an amazing journey of growth all have been on.
