Through our Scottish Union Learning Funding we have worked with one of our providers http://www.positively-speaking.co.uk/about-us/ to to develop a tutored online Assertiveness Course.
Assertiveness concerns being able to express feelings, wishes, wants and desires appropriately and is an important personal and interpersonal skill. In all your interactions with other people, whether at home or at work, with employers, customers or colleagues, assertiveness can help you to express yourself in a clear, open and reasonable way.
The course is normally a Full Day face to face tutored course but as no face to face learning can take place just now the course has been split into three 2 hour online tutored sessions .
The dates and times are as follows:
First Session 10 am to 12 noon 25th August
Second Session 10 am to 12 noon 26th August
Third session 10 am to 12 noon 27th August
The course is open to all members and activists.
Members/Activists wishing to attend should complete the attached Form and return it as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org .
