Download the programme


A raft of educational research provides evidence that attitudes to learning significantly affect achievement and success. This course explores Neuro Linguistic Programming, developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s, as a method for communicating and behaving to create personal change.  

The practical application of NLP strategies and techniques can provide solutions to current challenges within Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance; promoting independent learning, fostering resilience, supporting learner owned decision making and nurturing the right attitude for learning and progression throughout life.

This course is highly practical and briefly explores the theory behind NLP and then provides the opportunity to identify and practice preferred techniques and strategies. Using NLP techniques you will be supported to identify how we can challenge limiting beliefs, effectively support motivation and engagement and boost achievement and success in career learning.
