Course description

This short online course is ideal for anyone who wishes to develop or improve their confidence.

It explores what confidence is and its associated behaviours, and provides useful techniques and resources for you to use.

Confidence is something that many of us feel we lack, and an improvement in our confidence can have a positive impact on our lives – both in our personal life, as well as our professional one.

This is why we have designed this short confidence building training course to help you develop your confidence. It not only explores the context of confidence – what confidence is, its associated behaviours and the confidence of the British society – but it also provides useful hints and tips, such as helpful confidence building techniques, a tool to assess your own confidence, and an action plan document to help you put a plan into practice. It is suitable for anyone who wishes to develop their confidence.

The course covers the following topics:

  • What confidence is and its associated behaviours
  • How confident you are, and the British society as a whole
  • How to improve confidence
  • Setting targets to build confidence
  • Action planning, including an action plan download

This course is also included in our 15-course Personal and Professional Development Training Package.

You will learn

  • Know what confidence is
  • Understand a number of confidence-building techniques that can be applied to your individual circumstances

  • Buy the course

    When buying one of our courses, you will need to enter a valid email address which will be used to create your account with our Learning Management System – Enable – where you will take the training. We will also send your purchase receipt to this email address, and any additional courses purchased in future using the same email address will be added to your system account.

    Once you have purchased a course, you will be able to send this course to other people using your system account with Enable by entering the new learner’s email address so that they may access the training and set up their own system account with our Learning Management System.

    If you are not 100% satisfied with your course then we offer a 30-day, no hassle money-back guarantee. To request a refund, you should email our learner support team with your receipt stating why you would like to be reimbursed. You, or your learners, must not have completed the training in order to make a valid refund claim. Any claim made after the training has been completed will be invalidated.

  • Take the course

    This online course consists of a series of pages in which an instructor will talk learners through the lesson material. Pages may include supporting pictures, graphs, animation or extra sounds to help with the learning where appropriate. Some lessons will include challenges/quizzes to help learners stay engaged and interested in the material. Lessons can be taken in any order and each lesson may be paused and resumed at any stage.

    The course is self-paced so learners decide how fast or slow the training goes. There is no deadline for completion but some of our courses have a test at the end to check that learners have understood the material. If the course has a test at the end then learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark to successfully complete the course. Once learners have passed the test they are awarded a certificate, which can either be downloaded digitally or sent as a physical copy if this option was chosen when purchasing the course.

  • Your Certificate

    Upon completion of any of our courses, learners will be able to download a digital certificate from Virtual College which will include the accrediting bodies logo where applicable, the learner's name, the title of the course and the date of completion.

    If you have purchased the posted certificate option, available on selected courses, a high quality, seal embossed, certificate will be sent out the following working week after completion.
