Earlier this month we launched a brand new confidence-building programme for the women of Merseyside. As our first 4-week ‘Change It: Progress to Success’ is coming to its end, we thought this would be a good time to catch up with the current cohort, see how they’re getting on, and look ahead to the next programme due to start on Monday 20th of March at 54 St James Street.

“Change It: Progress to Success” is a personal development course that aims to inspire women to feel more confident about what they can achieve. Our trainers will encourage you to think about what it is you want to change, and then help you believe that you can do it.

The programme covers many topics including becoming more assertive and breaking negative thinking habits in order to develop a more positive outlook in all aspects of life. Throughout ‘Change It’ our trainers will help you to learn more about yourself, set achievable goals and plan for a future that you want.

Jenny Wallwork, our Training and Development Specialist, is leading the 4-week programme from 54 St James Street, home of The Women’s Organisation. We caught up with Jenny and the women on her programme to find out more about what they’ve took from the past few weeks.

‘Change It’ Trainer, Jenny said: “My first ‘Change it’ course’ has been inspiring to myself, working with women from many different backgrounds, who have for some, experienced many challenges in their lives.  Being able to be a part of their journey of change and witness the growth in their confidence and self-esteem, has been a privilege and I look forward to meeting the next cohort.”

 Comments from women on the programme included;

“Jenny is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer who has been welcoming and informative”

“The course is called ‘Change It’, but together we are changing ourselves”

“Feeling empowered”

“I did a ‘one-day’ confidence building course a few years ago and wanted to do more but at the time there didn’t appear to be anything between that and business start-up courses – so thanks for listening” 

“The course and Jenny left me feeling empowered, supported and able to make the changes I want”

“’Change It’ is boss! Jenny is great, very friendly and approachable. Positive thinking and assertiveness modules have helped me already in my day to day – I don’t want the course to end!” 

Over the next three years, we intend to work with over 500 women developing confidence and helping women to see their true potential. We’re thrilled to have such great feedback from the programme and we’re now already preparing for our next. So if you missed our last cohort – it’s not too late to book your place onto the next, which will begin on Monday 20th of March, at The Women’s Organisation.
