Case Study - BSI Learning Case Managers change the mindset and lives of women who previously thought there was no way out of their dangerous lifestyle

Client - Hope Foundation

Organisational Need

The Hope Foundation supports women who are seeking a life change from addictions and/or the sex industry. These women are highly disadvantaged and most importantly required a safe, discrete and confidential environment in order to:

  • develop skills
  • locate new employment opportunities
  • build their self-esteem and
  • gain access to services or assistance

Desired Outcomes

A safe exit (highly discrete and confidential) for those wanting to leave the sex industry. Due to the nature of the industry, the safe exit is key to the success of the program.

Solution

Within a highly delicate and volatile environment, BSI Learning had two very important tasks - build their clients' self esteem and sourcing them enjoyable training. Clients' self-esteem was linked to their mindset, and BSI Learning successfully developed their clients' self-direction, optimism and self-acceptance. Understanding their clients also helped them identify the ideal training which would improve their chances of employment, and educate them regarding subsidies and solutions relevant to their needs.

Results

Over a 12-month period, BSI Learning changed the lives of approximately a dozen women who either completed and/or continued their study arrangements.

Testimonial

  • “We are very pleased to provide this testimonial for BSI Learning. We have found BSI Learning to be very professional. They made sure they understood the Council vision and mission of striving towards the welfare of Aboriginal people. The Training Manager and trainers that were engaged to deliver training interacted very well and they also had a good understanding and respect for Aboriginal culture.

    From the evaluations we have received from the participants and from my own observation, we would like to provide our views.

    BSI Learning Trainers are very talented presenters who were able to guide a diverse group of participants with ease. They also provided personal attention to each and every participant that boosted their confidence and increased their comfort to actively participate in the training session.”

  • "I found the program to be an excellent balance of modern academic thinking and practical knowledge and tools in the area of leadership. The eight days were well structured and delivered in a manner which enabled maximum understanding and reflection. Great delivery by Steve. I don’t think the program would have had the same potency without the energy and talent Steve obviously possesses as a trainer / motivator / coach."
