This course will run for 2 days per week over 4 weeks and provides an excellent opportunity to build the skills and confidence needed to effectively think about moving towards work.

Each day participants will cover a different topic including confidence and self-esteem and will learn additional life skills to empower themselves to try new things.  We will also look at communication, assertiveness, dealing with stress, life balance, finance and budgeting, decision making and coping with change.  Training will finish with a Peer Support outing to various City locations to practice new life skills.
