Overview of Positive Progress Course

Mary Seacole House delivers this 8 week short course to enable people who are at risk or living with mental health problems to improve their confidence. With the support and guidance this course offers, we hope it will lead to new relationships being formed and a desire to seek out activities, education and further training in the future.


The aim is to help individuals to develop and demonstrate a range of skills such as; learning, team work, coping with problems, use of IT, use of English, use of Maths. Positive Progress recognises and rewards personal achievements and we want people to engage in new and interesting activities together. 


The course is devised of workshop based learning within a group setting and participants will be required to complete 60 hours/6 credits from the course modules in order to gain an ASDAN (Awards Scheme Development & Accreditation Network) certification in PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Economics).


The modules are designed to develop effective communication and problem solving skills, helping individuals progress onto/into employment, further education, apprenticeships or volunteering.


The course will be built from the following modules:

  • Healthy and Safe Food
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Personal Wellbeing
  • Sex and Relationships
  • Becoming a Parent
  • Economic Wellbeing


At the last session opportunities are presented for participants to gain further training or assistance with educational routes, as well as direct referrals to Remploy to assist and support them on their journey into employment. We also offer volunteer placements at Mary Seacole House and other voluntary agencies. We will assist with all the forms and registration for the persons chosen path.
