"This was a real bonus to our intern programme. The learning is well-structured with measurable outcomes. I'd like to do the course myself to be honest!"

"This was very helpful. Specifically, It's enabled me to think about my strengths and areas for development. For instance, I now have a greater understanding of what adaptability is, where I can see it in others, and what questions to focus on to improve it. Other programmes I have done don't have a balance between reflection and thinking about the future. Often they require you to make specific goals that don't always leave room for growth and change. With this programme, I feel there is a balance of both and I have a lot of SMART targets that I can start working on now."

  • A personal development plan designed to enable learners to bring greater focus and ownership to their long-term professional development

Skills covered include:

  • Communication

  • Leadership

  • Problem-Solving

  • Adaptability

"This serves as a great foundation for being able to understand what skills are important within the workplace and why they are important. Crucially, the experience allowed me to come to positive conclusions about my strengths that I previously would never have considered before. An example of this is that before the programme, I would not have considered myself entrepreneurial - but now I understand my entrepreneurial traits and how to put them into practice."
