Overcoming setbacks

This module focuses on the idea of positive challenge for growth and development. It will encourage learners to consider how they currently deal with setbacks and how they can take a solution-focused approach to facing challenges in the future.

By the end of the module, learners will be able to:

  • Consider personal barriers and identify techniques to help in challenging situations
  • Use tools to help them build resilience when dealing with personal challenges
  • Understand how learning from experiences contribute to success
  • Reflect on their support network and how this can help them

Your adult learners can also get a free objective assessment of their skills which includes staying positive (resilience), by accessing CareerEar skills assessments.  This aims to help them understand how well they have developed their skills to support them succeeding in today's workplace.
