Building confidence and self-esteem14-July-2021
Being confident isn’t something that comes naturally to everyone - even the most confident people need a little support from time-to-time. To help with this, we at Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales, offer Confidence Building taster courses.
Our Confidence Building taster courses aim to promote understanding of what defines self-confidence and self-esteem, what can damage it, how our own behaviour can help develop our self-esteem and confidence and the importance of communication techniques, which can help to build confidence and reduce stress.
One of our learners Carly says, “The course has given me a greater insight into my confidence and self-esteem and what triggers me to lose self-belief; I believe that by taking this course I know have a better understanding of myself and look forward to practicing these newly discovered techniques. I have recommended the course to a few of my friends and my work colleagues and I look forward to hearing of their progress and experience of it. I'm certain it will be as positive as mine!”
Luisa, Carly’s tutor notes, “Students respond very well to my challenges through the sessions. I always have blank presentation slides, so when discussing a topic, we complete the slides with the group discussions outcome. It gives the learners some ownership over the topics and demonstrates their understanding. This is an amazing group and over the two sessions, we were all comfortable in the same space. Everyone engaged and participated using their own self-awareness where they related several examples of their own topical experiences.”
Tutor Luisa reflects, “On our first online session I had two learners with their cameras switched on, and when we finished our second session all learners felt confident to have their cameras on – a great measure I think of their increased confidence!”
Huge congratulations to tutor Luisa, as well as Carly and all of our learners who attended the Knowing Myself course.
