Why we established ASPIRE

 

While Conor and Camilla acknowledge and celebrate the positive effects of the rise in technology, they strongly believe that the resultant over-reliance on cyber-sociability has affected the development of some core interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, vital for optimum self-development.

Through ASPIRE Academy, Camilla and Conor have designed a series of training programmes for teenagers and parents of young children. These programmes are delivered primarily in small group workshop-type formats. However, person-to-person training and one to one parent consultations are also provided.

Programmes focus on a variety of areas, including communication skills, self-confidence, mindfulness and study skills. The overall approach to training and skills development at ASPIRE embraces a philosophy dedicated to the cultivation of individual well-being in the rising tide of a continuously ‘plugged-in’ cyber world.
