A 40-hour commitment that sees individuals gain a level 2 accredited qualification in leadership. We offer a number of variations, both virtual and face to face options are provided. The programme focuses on three aspects that begin with recognising our environments and beginning to understand them, we do this by looking at boundaries and safeguarding. Self-reflection is a strong theme throughout the course. With 27-hour face to face learning and the remaining 13 hours being made up of self-reflection and exploration. The course focuses on leadership on an individual level, improving who we are as individuals while recognising and respecting diversity. Once we have established who we are and how we behave we look at how we impact others. Finally, we explore how we can reflect on what we deem is ‘wrong’ about our past, and use is as something ‘strong’ for employers.
The face to face course is an intensive three-day event. The virtual course is a softer approach, delivered over 12 weeks at 3.5 hours a week.

Very amazing, good wellbeing different levels of understanding. U learnt so much and can put the work into practice. I know what I want to be in life work with people who are getting through struggles. Anything I can do to heal others, my energy and positive out there.
I was nervous from the beginning, especially. When I was told I’d be videoed on the first presentation. I struggled to do the first 2 minutes as I ran out of what to say. But with good constructive comments from Emma and other participants I felt better.
I liked the way quick sessions were done, each one adding a different skill. I really enjoyed the session.
My feedback from Emma was truth and positivity what I have taken from it was more hope and inspiration. I am worthy I can rise up like an eagle and most importantly for me is to get rid of the chicken is in my life. An inspirational real talking group and truth has power in it, real emotions and trust.
I found it really hard, scary and had a lump of anxiety in my throat and my stomach all day but this afternoon I’ve been bowled over and honoured with such inspirations. Glad I was here and thankful, I will practice on these skills.
Grown in experience and confident talking about my recovery and my part of being a member of Red Rose Recovery.
Although I did not stand up in the final assessment, I still feel like an eagle! Today has opened my eyes to the art of speaking. I didn’t think id be able to stand up at all. Thanks for your time spent with us today. When I have enough to say I will say it. Listening to others today that were in my position inspired me to stay strong.
I was very scared at the start but as getting through the day I grew and became more confident in speaking I’m still a little shaky but in time I think that it will go away, and the things said were very powerful and moving. I thought my story wasn’t anything special and that I didn’t really have one but today has made me realise I have got one and I am bettering myself every day.
