Since beginning the Wordpower class Jules has built upon her skills and, more importantly, increased in confidence in all aspects of reading, writing and speaking and listening. In Spring 2013 Jules passed her Level 1 reading exam and will shortly be sitting her Level 1 writing and speaking and listening. Outside of the class, Jules has been involved in many NHS initiatives, the most recent of which being the Care Programme Approach Champions Scheme. As part of this Jules has had to transfer her skills from the classroom and tackle situations that are completely new for her. From the Recovery College’s newsletter:

“The [Care Programme Approach] Champions were taught presentation skills, including the use of PowerPoint, and learnt how to effectively deliver their message using a multitude of visual and auditory techniques in teaching. Each of the service users developed individual presentations which they delivered on the presentation day. The topics covered were the importance of including carers; service user involvement; care plans; and overuse of medication. The Champions have committed themselves to promoting the CPA across the Trust, working with the CPA team in developing information for service users. From August they will also be involved in delivering parts of the Care Co-ordinator training.”
