Customer testimonials

We love hearing from our customers, here’s what some of our clients who have completed training with us had to say about Do-IT…

University of Nottingham Logo

University of Nottingham

“The Do-It Profiler is more than a screener and it has proved to be a really effective resource for the University. It has been invaluable in supporting the increasing number of students exploring the possibility of having a Specific Learning Difference. Not only does the report it produces support students in deciding whether they wish to undertake a formal assessment for a range of SpLDs, but the program also helps each student identify their strengths and limitations and matches this profile to various study resources, so empowering independent student learning. Several academic schools have benefitted from using the latter aspect of the Do It Profiler during their transition programmes.”

City and Islington College

“This is a fantastic tool to identify students but also to support them through their course…It’s just a wonderful resource/tool and Do-IT solutions is the most responsive and forward- thinking organisation I’ve come across.”
Right Resources Ltd Logo

CEO, Janette Beetham, Right Resources Ltd

“Having used the Do-IT Profiler ‘Workplace Assessors+’ with individuals in a cross section of workplace settings for the past 18 months I would definitely recommend it to those qualified to undertake workplace needs assessments. The multi-modular nature of the Do-IT Workplace Assessors+ means you can select the most appropriate and useful elements to provide a more bespoke screening experience for each individual.”
G4S Logo

Resettlement Practice Manager (Oakhill Secure Training Centre), David Brown, G4S

“As an establishment we deal with complex children many of whom have unidentified learning needs and/or diagnosed mental health needs. The DO-IT allows us to get an understanding of the needs of the child when they arrive, then as we get to know an individual and refer to their past history, we are able to have a bigger picture of what their needs are. We can use DO-IT’s intervention screener to apply the interventions based on their responses and it allows us to create plans for behaviour management with the child, that is bespoke to them and makes them feel like they are part of the process of planning their future, which is fundamental if we are to achieve success with a child.”

Deborah Reeve, Admiral

“Here at Admiral, we were interested in exploring Psychometric testing in Recruitment. We wanted to identify what ‘great’ looks like in specific departments across the business and use this measure to enhance our selection process. We began with a benchmark of companies that provide psychometric testing. After a broad analysis of several potential providers, we opted for Do-IT who do things differently…Candidates, Recruitment Managers and Department Managers alike have found the tool useful and we are looking forward to developing it further and discovering more opportunities to use Do-IT across the business!”
St Helens Youth Justice Service Logo

Operational Manager, Lee Matthews, St Helens Youth Justice Service

“Do-IT profiler’ has been an invaluable in assisting Youth Justice Service practitioners to identify the neurodiverse strengths and challenges of the children that we work with. Using this tool, practitioners have been able to tailor plans and interventions specifically with each child in mind. In addition, practitioners have been able to share findings with other key agencies to ensure a each child’s needs are supported appropriately across the partnership. Regular data analysis from the team has also helped us to gain a greater understanding of the neurodiversity of children known to our service.”
Alliance of Sport Logo

Co-Founder and COO, Justine Coleman, Alliance of Sport

“This digital app is a phenomenal game changer – having worked in Criminal Justice and with complex people, Neurodiversity assessment and identification is a very costly, time consuming and complex process. The assessment process in this app and the person centred report, offers a truly unique, cost effective and time saving foundation for all professionals and participants to learn from and move forward with. I will be using this within all our projects moving forwards.”

Lauren Gallagher, Post Office

“Do-IT’s insights are particularly relevant to us right now as we work on building an inclusive culture at Post Office – one where every colleague can bring their whole self to work and know that their unique contribution is valued. There are a number of practical things we will take away from Amanda’s session that will help us shape this kind of environment to support neurodiverse colleagues, and to help educate the wider business on the subject.”

Director of People and Operations, Liz Delaney, The Donaldson Trust

“The Embracing Neurodiversity module has provided an excellent basis for further developing our staff’s knowledge of neurodiversity and of types of neurodivergence. It has facilitated a shared understanding of our inclusive approach and use of language, enabling staff to consider neurodiversity in different contexts, beyond the direct support we deliver to individuals with neurodiversities to include others such as colleagues and visitors to our premises. This in turn has ensured positivity and proactivity in adjusting our practices and the environment to be more inclusive.”

People Partner, Karina Olver, FSCS

“The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has recently worked closely with Do-IT Profiler and Dr. Amanda Kirby to progress our inclusivity work with a particular focus on Neurodiversity and how we can best support our colleagues. Dr. Kirby held an informative learning session on Neurodiversity with our colleagues, which was invaluable for all that attended. We also undertook the Neurodiversity Confident – Gap Analysis and Disability Confident – Gap Analysis which helped us highlight any areas for development where we could take further steps to improve our ways of working and processes. We are proud that we have recently received our Disability Confident Leader status, and Do-It Profiler has been instrumental with their guidance and support in helping us achieve this.”
