I have taken part in several adult education courses this year-Confidence building, assertiveness, mindfulness, transferable skills.
And some parent and child courses-CBeebies learning through play, storytime fun, 123 cook with me.
There's has not been a single course that I have not benefited from.
Firstly Confidence Building. When I joined this course I was having a really bad time in my life. I was already having cbt therapy and struggled alot around people I didn't know. The techniques I learnt during the course helped me in so many ways. I slowly managed to go to places and do things that once would have terrified me. I also made some good friends on the course that were going through similar things as me. That lead on to assertiveness and mindfulness which together have helped me to find the old me again.
I would also like to say that Emma Castledine the course tutor was brilliant. She led the classes in such a way that benefited every person there, we were able to grow, improve and learn together without having to fear anything.
The courses I did along side my daughter were so much fun. She couldn't wait to attend each week and the activities we need she still asks to do at home. We both learned a lot during our time on the courses.
I want to thank sure start for all the help and support I have received from them. When I had my daughter I had no friends in my area and was extremely shy. Sure start gave me the confidence to mix with other parent/carers in my area, be myself and allow my daughter to play and learn in a place of safety. I have never felt uncomfortable in the sure start and recommend to everyone I know with young families.
