SCQF Level 7 | Professional Diploma | 15 credit points

The Drive with Confidence professional diploma consists of four units covering:

* Unit 1 - Effective questioning
* Unit 2 - The Brain and Anxiety
* Unit 3 - Neurodiversity and Anxiety
* Unit 4 - Confidence Building

A qualification programme has to follow set criteria, with content designed around learning outcomes. Those learning outcomes need to be measurable, which we do through a series of assignments. Participants submit assignments to demonstrate that the learning outcome has been met. The assignments are assessed and internally verified. The result is that participants apply what they learn in the course and submit evidence demonstrating that learning has taken place.  

The Drive with Confidence professional diploma is designed with your busy schedule in mind. The content consists of both live and pre-recorded sessions. The qualification can be completed over 12 months. If you can't make it to the live sessions, don't worry. You can catch up online at your own pace and repeat the live modules free of charge on future cohorts. 

The live content for units 1, 2 & 4 is run alongside our current six-week Drive Calm® course.

October Cohort: Wednesdays 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm 23/10, 30/10, 6/11, 13/11, 20/11, 27/11

The live content for unit 3 is our CPD-accredited Neurodiversity Champion workshop.

October Cohort: Monday 11th November, 9.30 am - 4.30 pm
