About Us | Meet Our Staff | Steph Lees-Pinson
Training and Employment Lead
Hi, I’m Steph
I provide a wide range of support services and learning opportunities to help people get back into work, upskill or to feel socially included.
I design and deliver bespoke workshops and short courses, for example: Basic Computer Skills, Microsoft Office Basics, Getting Online, Keeping Safe Online, Social Media, WordPress, Setting Personal Goals, Confidence Building, CV Writing and Interviewing Skills.
I design and deliver Intact’s all encompassing ‘Back to Work’ service, which includes 1-1 Support, Work Clubs, Employability Skills and European Social Fund programmes such as Life Academy. I partner with and provide support to external organisations and service providers to deliver these wide ranging and diverse opportunities for service users.
I am Project Manager for all ‘Digital Inclusion’ and ‘Back to Work’ activities ensuring funding targets and outcomes are met.
My other key roles and specialities include:
- • Bespoke Design and Brand Development of Intact and delivery of key online / offline marketing media;
- • Key member of the Intact e-communications team @IntactCentre;
- • Member of the GoOn Lancashire (@DigitalInclusion) Steering Group;
- • Member of the Creative Communities Group (@CCG_UK;
- • Member of the Preston Work Club Networking Group;
- • Member of the Preston Financial Inclusion Group; • Supervision of Volunteers.
Outside the workplace I live with my partner Phil and my son, Sam. I also have a daughter, who lives elsewhere in Preston with my one year old grandson. My children are both very talented and creative (like their mum!). Sam is a web developer and Robyn a jewellery designer and maker.
I’m also a qualified graphic designer with over 25 years’ experience. In my spare time I love to keep my hand in with design projects and get creative in other ways from baking to painting, sewing to papier mache, to growing my own herbs, salad and vegetables.
I also love to read, eat out and take sun drenched holidays (preferably all at the same time).Do visit me at Intact if you would like to know more about my projects.
