Mindset is the attitude and skills which someone brings to their learning or work. We recognise students and apprentices experience many challenges, such as working under pressure or developing a new skill, and we know this can be countered, or even turned into benefits when you possess and apply the right mental and behavioural skills.

The Mindset Masterclasses for students and apprentices provides a set of ten skills that can be applied to cope with those challenges and pressures. The ten skills are called the Psychological Characteristics of Developing Excellence (PCDEs). Each masterclass offers an introduction with insights from young people and educators across education, industry, sport, music and dance who share their experiences, practices, and lessons to unpack the ten skills and how these can be used to cope in any situation whether at college, work or everyday life.

There are 10 interactive masterclasses which are approximately 15 mins each and six scenario-based assessments which are approximately 10 mins each. So the overall total is 3.5 hours

The modules

We are a female only college, and some students struggle with their confidence. I like the Hub because we can utilise the available resources and add both the skills and CPD content into our existing Mental Programme of teaching and learning materials.

What I really like about it is it’s really easy to use and the videos. it’s good to see athletes and squad members on there to make it relevant.
