Celebrating 12 years in business 16th April 2020

Celebrating 12 years in business 16th April 2020

On this day 16th April 2008 , twelve years ago, I proudly registered my own limited company. It’s been the most amazing journey to say the least.

The Chinara logo

I started Chinara Enterprises so that I could do everything that I enjoy doing under through one company. All of my life I have been committed to developing and supporting people, as well as creating opportunities to bring people together and promoting talent.

The name Chinara is of Nigerian origin and means God receives, and I chose that not just because of my faith, but because I believe that every person has the ability to realise their potential. The candle symbol in my logo represents the light that shines inside all us, and my aspiration is to enable people and organisation to achieve their ambitions and provide a beacon of hope to others.

Over the past 12 years I have had the opportunity to work and engage with so many amazing people through all of the many organisations I have worked with. With an expert team of associates that has grown over the years, we have been able to achieve successes in a number of areas. My very first contract was with the then Children’s Workforce Development Council, this was then merged with the Department for Education. We worked with over 30 young people to develop a good practice guide in participation with young people for the children’s workforce.

Since then the Chinara Enterprises team have been engaged on a number of interim assignments for local councils have organised events, large concerts, conferences, offered mentoring, coaching, supervision, activities for young people, supported charities and much more !!

Its hard to say what we are most proud of as there are so many things and so many people who have been a part of our journey. My right hand people Stephanie Brown and Michael Cheesman have been my constant support from day when I started, and we are still an awesome team. I would not be where I am without their support, guidance and patience. My family too have been a source of constant support and encouragement, especially my son and my late daughter, who often get called upon to assist me with our many projects. The refreshed website in fact was designed and developed my my son’s company You Now Have Digital and Delton Digital

Our associate team has grown over the 12 years, I now have a database of over 100 associates across the country who provide training, coaching, mentoring and consultancy. I would also like to thank my accountants Bayar Hughes and Co and my insurance broker Acorn Insurance, and my solicitor Richard Long who have also stuck by me in my 12 years.

We are very excited to be working on the national Return to Social Work Programme again this year. This will be the third year running the programme, and we have been proud to see the achievements of previous candidates on the programme. Check out the Return to Social Work page for more information about the programme https://www.local.gov.uk/return-to-social-work.

We have had some great feedback from our customers over the years below are just a few

“I’ve found Carol and Chinara Enterprises to be highly knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to social work and anything to do with Social Work England. She ran a CPD workshop for our locum candidates and we received such lovely and appreciative feedback with some asking for more workshops to be run. She has also provided interview coaching for some of my candidates which has been informative and useful to said candidates. Carol is approachable and friendly, and I would highly recommend her and her knowledge to any social work agency or social workers in general.”

I want to congratulate Chinara Enterprises on its 12th anniversary.
It is a tremendous achievement, one that you should be exceptionally proud of as you have put a lot of work into the company and it is evidently clear the fruits of your labour is yielding good business opportunities for you.
Keep up the fantastic work as you are an inspiration to others to follow.
Well done

“I have known Carol, both professionally and personally for a number of years. Carol is an amazing individual with a wealth of knowledge, experience and ability who is both well liked and respected as a teacher, mentor and social worker. Carol started Chinara Enterprises a number of years ago and I have been fortunate enough to work with her on a variety of occasions.
I would highly recommend Chinara Enterprises to anyone looking for high-quality, sector specific social work/return to social work training provider. I wish Carol and her associates the very best for the future”

Thank you for the webinar. It really helped me to focus on my development and assisting my social work team to ensure they are focussing on their own development and compliant with the expectations of social work England. I will share my learning with the team.
If you are doing a webinar aimed at newly qualified social workers or students this would be useful
