Meet the team

Mitch was fortunate enough to undertake the Diploma in Supported Employment during its pilot year.  In 2009 he was asked to write The KSE TSI course which he now delivers with co-trainer Ben Carne.

Mitch is the lead trainer for KSE and runs a number of our Supported Employment courses as well as Disability Confidence sessions for employers.  In 2018 Mitch was awarded BASE Practitioner of the year award.  In his spare time he enjoys cooking and playing guitar, but not at the same time.

Due to his extensive experience of supporting people in the workplace as a job coach, Ben was asked to co-deliver his first TSI course in 2009 when, along with his co-trainer, he delivered TSI internally within the service. Since then he has delivered TSI training for over a hundred participants.

Ben has regularly delivered training on behalf of the organisation and along with TSI has delivered other courses including travel training, disability confident and job coach best practice courses.

Ben is particularly passionate about the in-work support within the service due to the empowering nature and the impact it can have on people’s lives. Ben gets great satisfaction from passing on his knowledge and strong values around TSI to as many other individuals and services as possible.

He is a qualified social worker, therapist and SENCo. He has managed multi-agency teams and chaired a national parenting forum.
