The aim of this module is to instil in learners the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to understand the concept and practice of self-care in work-related contexts. In particular, the module introduces learners to the importance of self-awareness and the processes that support ‘self-knowing’ within personal as well as work-related environments. Learners who demonstrate in-work competencies in self care can play an effective leadership role in their teams.
