What is this course about?

The course uses the five ways of wellbeing to help you make manageable changes in your life and support your mental health. You can use the advice as an individual, but it also can apply to supporting others.

This course is delivered by Voscur’s associate trainer Rob Wright. Following a varied career in both Education and Social Care as a manager, trainer and lecturer in psychology, Rob is currently a trainer in the field of mental health and wellbeing. Passionate about training in terms of personal development as well as achieving professional goals, Rob is an engaging and dynamic trainer. One of his key skills is making delegates feel comfortable in a training environment, and ensuring that people are able to fully engage and get the best out of the course. On Rob’s courses, boredom is not allowed!!

What will you learn?

At each session we will review how useful you have found the techniques over the previous week and this will also be an opportunity to share ideas.

By the end of the course, you will have a plan to take forward and start to manage your wellbeing in a positive and reflective way.

Who is this course for?

Anyone working or volunteering in the VCSE sector who wants to learn how to ensure they can maintain wellbeing.

Voscur is running all our training online due to the ongoing public health situation with coronavirus (or COVID-19).

If you cancel your place on a paid for training course you will need to give at least 2 weeks' notice in which case a full refund/credit note will be issued. Less than 2 weeks' notice will result in the full cost of the course being invoiced (not being refunded/credited), unless you can give the place to somebody else.  If the place is transferred to someone else there may be an adjustment on payment/fee depending on their/their organisations membership status.

If you have been offered a free place, or the training you have booked is a free session: if you do not cancel giving at least 2 weeks' notice and you fail to attend (and are unable to send someone in your place) an admin fee of £25 will be charged, we will invoice you/your organisation.
