Anna embarked on challenging and changing the way we educate young people. Anna built Comedy & Confidence Training Program which was accredited under SCQF Levels 3,4,5,6 and is a custom built SQA Award.
Comedy & Confidence are a not for profit Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Paisley. We deliver alternative creative education courses to people disengaged from mainstream education/work/life. Our courses aim to build life skills that they are otherwise not getting - confidence, communication and presentation through the medium of comedy.
Our courses are built under the SQA and SCQF at SCQF. People learn, laugh and acquire a recognised, accredited qualification. Alongside our qualifications we also offer bespoke workshops to people of all ages, again through the medium of comedy, which can be tailored to the group needs and issues they wish to explore through a creative platform.
Comedy & Confidence also do staff training for a variation of businesses and third sector organisations, where we create bespoke sketches around new policies and procedures. Our work has impacted at a government policy level with changes in place from things our young people have presented around the children's panel and social work services.
