Exciting Development – Brand New Managing Uncertainty and Self-Resilience for Employability Qualification

In recent months we have been working hard developing a new Level 1 Award in Managing Uncertainty and Self-Resilience for Employability qualification, launching on 1st May. Unique to Ascentis, this qualification has been developed in response to the pandemic and acts as a force that boosts self-esteem and self-awareness for employment, during times of change. It aims to ensure learners are in the best possible frame of mind when returning to daily life. That will in turn kickstart the economy across your region and beyond.

Benefits of this Qualification

  • It has been carefully designed to give learners knowledge and understanding of the effects of uncertainty and change on personal stress; raise awareness of mindfulness and stress management techniques to manage self during these times; and raise awareness of transferable skills to build confidence and support employability
  • Assessed by a portfolio of evidence, which means it can be taught online and learners do not have to come into the classroom
  • It is accompanied by a learner workbook, which can also be contextualised by tutors to meet individual learner needs
  • Supported by a glossary of key terms for learners and indicative content for tutors
  • The flexible structure of the qualification allows the student to take control of their learning
  • Suitable for learners aged 16-19 and adults
  • Can be used as a standalone qualification or as part of study programmes

In addition, we have a fantastic Mindfulness resource, which is free to all Ascentis Centres and will offer extra enrichment to learners completing this qualification. This workbook entitled ‘Tips to survive the modern world', explores ways to boost health, well-being and happiness. Contact us to find out more.
