About The Colour Works Foundation:

What we do

We run an 8-week programme with young people based on The Colour Model. The full course outline can be downloaded below. 

By building self-belief through our colour profiling tool, we equip young people with tools that build confidence and resilience.  Participants develop strong interpersonal and communication skills so that they are able to make positive life choices for themselves.

Through a tailored programme of group workshops, using models and methods that have proven success with private and public sector employers, we cover:

Who am I?

What am I great at?

What do I struggle with?

What inspires me?

What frustrates me?

Do I react or respond?

How well do I present myself?

How do I build resilience?

Who do I naturally get on with and who not?

Why might that be?

How might I learn to value the differences?

How do I come across to others?

Who are the critical people in my life?

How might I adapt my style to better meet their needs?

Do I have a purpose?

What help do I need to make better decisions?
