What we do – Who we are – How we work
Periscope Programmes was born out of a desire to support graduates and academics to understand how their unique skillsets can open doors for them beyond academia. We offer a range of transformative programmes, workshops and keynotes for Universities, academics and graduates, as well as career switchers and entrepreneurs outside of the education sector.
Our facilitators are personable and passionate about enabling effective career management. They call upon an array of knowledge and experience to create relaxed, friendly environments which enable participants to directly respond to these challenges, and inspire them to speak freely, building a sense of community and support.
Our Approach & Expertise
We pride ourselves on being a person-centred organisation where programs and services are coproduced with users enabling us to meet the needs and address the challenges of the people and organisations we work with.
Coaches and facilitators hold many years of experience in higher education, supporting people to think clearly and set goals to enable career progression. All are qualified through the Institute of Leadership and Management, Level 7 (Executive Coaching and Mentoring) and are affiliated with the International Coaching Federation. We are experienced in working with university departments and so booking, finance, links, attendance, and program management is effecient. We love what we do, care about our customers and are committed to ongoing professional development to continue to meet the needs of the people we work with.
Our Career Management Model
This three-part model sits at the centre of our career management programmes. Our tools and frameworks have been adapted from social mobility theory to enable you to explore and understand your career in depth, as well as to practically apply your learnings to plan for your future. This process provides a space to discuss common challenges, employer expectations and the diversity of options available. This is a stimulating, step-by-step career management process which enables powerful results.
