Using these nine categories as our structure, we will focus each module on each category in turn. You will get tasks to help you develop your confidence in each category. You can work on every area, if you want to, but you must decide which ones are most important. Our next module, before we get started on these nine modules, is all about goal setting. This is where we will help you work out the specific things you want to work on during the programme.
