Explore a learning pathway to support personal development and overcoming challenges

This pathway explores how to develop confidence and resilience, two key skills needed for the workplace.  It gives a suggested route through the resources to help students with personal development and overcoming challenges.

Teaching this succession of resources can help to strengthen your students’ key skills so they can feel confident and apply them across multiple jobs and sectors.  

The pathway contains a varied mix of resources from a film, flexible classroom lessons, practical activities and audio case studies to help them feel confident in the workplace.  You can access the relevant resource by clicking on each part of the infographic below and you can also download the pathway as a PDF from this page if it would be helpful to print. 

Students will learn:
