ICAN Personal Development Ltd based in the Docklands was established in November 2002 for test trading purposes and began officially trading in 2004. Sophia formed the company with an initial set-up of £80 mixed with self-belief, tenacity and a passion to empower young people and adults to realise and maintain their full potential and career aspirations. Sophia has worked with clients including disengaged and marginalised youth (UK and South Africa), undergraduates, unemployed clients and corporate professionals.
After graduating with a Business Studies degree, she began her career within community regeneration delivering formal employability and personal effectiveness training for unemployed clients and college students. During this time she designed and delivered on Job Centre Plus contracts and locally funded training provision for young people and adults within The London Borough of Newham and Tower Hamlets.
In 2005, Sophia resigned from her post as an Employability Skills Trainer working within a further education college to manage ICAN Personal Development Ltd full-time. Her ultimate aim for the Company is to continue to deliver a rich-mix of accredited employability and enterprise programmes/ resources to empower clients to make a positive contribution to society.
