Manchester Resilience Project

The Manchester Resilience Project is a free online course (with lots of breaks) designed to help you to improve your wellbeing whilst looking for employment, education or training opportunities.

You will work individually or in a small group with a trainer to explore different ways of thinking to help improve your confidence and motivation, create personalised routines, goals and wellbeing plans for those days when seeking new opportunities can feel overwhelming.

“I think the course should cover overcoming rejection – rejection isn’t scary” Focus Group Participant

Through consultation with young people we found out that what they mostly wanted from this course was guidance on improving and maintaining motivation, routine and managing difficult feelings. This has been invaluable in informing the content of the course.

What will the course cover?

  • How to put your wellbeing first whilst looking for work/opportunities
  • Different ways of thinking for confidence and motivation
  • How to set goals and reach them
  • Importance of routine
  • Support in taking your next steps e.g. advice, counselling or peer support
