This course aims to help learners understand the reasons for feeling unsure of themselves, how to participate more effectively in social situations and manage stress and how to set goals that increase their self-confidence.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and rules regarding social distancing this course will be taught via blended learning. The course will include both online and face to face teaching sessions. All sessions will be scheduled at the times indicated below.
? The course tutor will provide live teaching sessions online using Microsoft Teams.
? Selected sessions will be available for a small number of students on a rota basis at the college. All face to face sessions will also be streamed online to ensure all learners can fully participate in every session. Your course tutor will arrange with you a rota for coming into the college.
? If you are not attending in person, you will participate in the session from home via Microsoft Teams.
? Learners who are unable to attend face to face sessions can still enrol onto the course and attend all sessions online.
Learners will also be able to access a wide range of College services including Moodle, Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Drive) and Microsoft Teams to support online learning. Induction sessions will be held prior to the start of the course, to allow learners to familiarise themselves with the online learning platforms.
The goal of this course is to identify those elements that undermine our confidence and provide solutions for conquering them.
Learners will gain the skills to establish their own personal objectives and a plan for future personal progression.

This course contains a short, accredited qualification, which consists of planning and carrying out several different confidence building projects using a range of taught skills. Students keep a portfolio and photographic evidence of work which will be assessed internally by Newbury College and externally via the awarding body. Upon successful completion of the qualification, students are awarded the Level one Award in Learning, Employability and Progression for Confidence Building.
Learners' work will be assessed by the tutor throughout the course and progress will be discussed with each learner. Learners' attainment will be recorded against the assessment criteria. Peer reviews and group discussions, reviewing completed work, will also form an important part of assessment.
