Course Overview

Would you like to de-stress and learn how to create your own home-made pamper products; saving money along the way, creating products that can be given away as gifts this festive season, or used as a special treat for yourself.

As an extra Christmas gift, Lancashire Adult Learning will be posting a resource pack out to you, containing all of the resources you will need to take part in this course.

How long is the course?
The course is 2 hours per week/session and is delivered over 2 weeks 

What will I learn?

This short course focuses on the self-care aspect of wellbeing alongside elements of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing: Give, Connect, Take Notice & Keep Learning.

Taking part in craft-based activities is known to relieve stress, increase focus and creativity to provide an increased sense of personal wellbeing. We hope this course will give a much-needed boost to your wellbeing, self-care routines and inspiration for gifts just in time for the festive period!

By the end of the course you will be able to:
Create a range of pamper products and arrange in a hamper as a gift to self or others
Identify signs of stress and causes of stress in everyday life
Give an example of a way to deal with stress
Demonstrate dealing positively with stress
Outline self-care regimes and discuss how this connects with personal wellbeing
Make appropriate contributions to discussions on topics related to the course content, including asking and responding to relevant questions

This course also contains two accredited units from Open Awards:
Dealing with Stress (E2)
Engage in Discussion (E2)
These units are blended into the core content of the course and learners will create evidence for the unit criteria by completing tasks and practical activities as planned by the course teacher. Certification for these units will be provided upon successful completion of the course.

How will the course be assessed?

The course will be delivered live and learners will be supported to work through the course content.
In addition to this, learners will be given access to Moodle (VLE – Virtual Learning Environment) so activities can be completed during and between sessions to record progress and achievement. Other activities include: 
Active listening and reflective discussion   
Participation in practical art activities during and between sessions 
Personal reflection and note taking 
Links to recommended websites and apps will be given to aid independent learning

Learners will receive feedback in order to further develop their knowledge   
Learners will assess their knowledge at the start of the course and again at the end against the learning outcomes. This allows you to identify how much you have learnt and where you might need to do further study or research.
