Developing Resilience 

3 day course

Resilience is the ability to manage change difficulties and high demands without becoming overwhelmed.

People and organisations with resilience are able to adapt to adverse situations. They recover and learn when things do not go to plan

This innovative three-day course from the University of Chichester will provide you with a firm understanding of the theoretical principles of resilience.

However, its overriding aim is to equip you with the knowledge and skills to effect change in your own practice and to make a difference in your organisation.

Advanced Critical Analysis and Decision Making

Evening course

We make countless decisions every day in both our personal and professional lives, some unconsciously, others considered at great length.

This ten-part evening course will introduce you to key concepts and theories in critical thinking, particularly focusing on the development of the critical thinking and analytical skills required by experienced professionals to make effective judgements and decisions.

This course has an emphasis on the exploration of decision making using critical analysis and using tools/methods to make decisions particularly in the context of risk, uncertainty, incomplete or contradictory information, or in the context of high-pressured or emotional situations.

Mentoring and Coaching Skills

3 day course

This three-day course is designed to equip staff from a variety of backgrounds with the knowledge and skills required to undertake the role of a mentor or coach in a work setting.

The introduction of initiatives in Education and Social and Healthcare work has created the need for an increasing number of experienced staff to undertake the supportive and development tasks that are implicit in the concept of mentoring and coaching.

This may entail working closely with trainee or newly qualified staff during their first year in post, or during a specific programme of study but it is equally important for skilled mentors or coaches to be available to other staff at times when a need arises.

The course will introduce a number of different models of coaching and mentoring.

You will be encouraged to reflect on your personal style and to develop a model of coaching or mentoring that you can use in your role.
