A Project To Improve The Confidence Of Young People

Project Overview

The aim is to improve the confidence of young people, to enable them to make their own decisions and work towards becoming employable in the future. The programme is designed to directly address the needs of young people in a variety of ways. It focuses primarily on raising self-esteem and building confidence on their journey to employment.


  •  Self Awareness: This key unit aims to enhance the learner’s awareness of their own strengths and abilities and how these can be used to overcome barriers to learning, both now and in the future.
  • Decision Making: This part of the curriculum helps the learner to consider their approach to decision making. It teaches them to reflect on a range of strategies for dealing with everyday decisions and beyond.
  • Assertiveness: This unit encourages the learner to take control of their lives and discover the benefits of assertive behaviour.
