Learning Experience

The subject, whilst delivered remotely, actually involves blended learning. Several topics are delivered fully online, allowing you to self-navigate through key content whilst also completing interactive learning activities. The online content uses the latest employment market data and insights, allowing you to tailor the materials and the tools to your specific career path, goals and personalised planning.

To optimise learning and to deliver an engaging student experience, live video workshops supplement the self-paced learning. These workshops are facilitated by subject matter and industry experts, sharing real world experience and advice. The online workshops allow you to ask questions and to receive direct feedback as well as coaching.
