What’s in the course and how do I use it?
What about me? contains a mixture of personal reflection, ideas about how we learn from reflection and activities for you to try out for yourself.
It features case studies of carers with many different experiences of employment, education and caring. These case studies highlight a range of personal journeys and explore the circumstances and issues encountered as a result of their caring role.
There are five sessions within the course that include a range of activities to help you reflect on the following:
- Session 2: Learning by looking at my life over time
- Session 3: Identifying my skills, qualities and abilities
- Session 4: Clarifying my goals and planning for the future
- Session 5: Identifying my next steps and where I can find information and support
In each of the five sessions you will be invited to relate your own experiences to the ones illustrated and try out the individual tasks. Each section will take you about an hour to complete.
There is also a Find out more section at the end of the course, with information links and contact details for further resources and support.
