Kiechelle Degale

Employability skills + can-do attitude = winning results!

Kiechelle Degale grew up in a little village in Trinidad and always saw firsthand how a low skill set, lack of communication skills, and poor understanding of employability skills can devastate the lives of young people. Moving to London in her teens, this acknowledgement continued. Kiechelle then made it a lifelong quest to dedicate her life to adding massive value by bringing to the youth innovative, creative, engaging, dynamic and effective training and talks.

For most of the past decade she has been working with young people, creating groundbreaking changes in attitude, levels of skills, self-belief, and self-confidence.

Having founded and launched a Student Leadership Academy in a 6th Form College, Kiechelle’s passion for creating and delivering a range of Employability Training has grown extensively.

This work has lead to her winning the ‘Highly Commended LSIS Star Award’ in 2009 in the category of ‘Responding to the Learner's Needs’.

Kiechelle now works as a full time trainer in London but travels throughout the UK. She comes highly recommended with repeated bookings by school and college leaders who book her. Her unique ability to work effectively with young people regardless of age, ability, personality, religion, belief and attitude makes her a sought-after trainer. She has worked with excluded young people and the gifted and talented, and everyone in between.

Kiechelle Degale recently took on an employability training project where she trained over 800 young people in 60 separate workshops in three weeks with very positive feedback from both teachers and students. Whatever the challenge, her ‘can do’ attitude always shines through. She brings positive energy, creativity, enthusiasm, an enormous skill set and sheer passion to every undertaking.

Testimonials from Teachers

"Kiechelle is an absolute star. She inspires and builds confidence. A real force of nature. She created and developed a programme against all odds out of her own creativity but then her life has been against all odds: she is a wonderful role model for our students and our staff. She is a firm believer in the power we have within ourselves to change our lives and shape our future. She re-dressed the balance for students who were so focussed on academic achievement alone to the detriment of soft skills so crucial in getting on in life, jobs and universities alike. I strongly recommend Kiechelle as a person who can inspire our future leaders."

– Paolo Ramella, Principal, Sir George Monoux College

Kiechelle is, without doubt, passionate about giving young people the life skills which they need to grow and develop as young citizens. She is a dedicated professional, who delivers to time and to budget, a really great learning experience for students of all types and ability. Kiechelle's enthusiasm for learning and soft skill development is infectious and all who meet her come away as better people because of it. Students freely acknowledge this themselves. I would have no hesitation at all of recommending Kiechelle to you as a trainer, coach or mentor."

– Kim Clifford, Principal, Cirencester College​
