Benefits of the Modern Learner Course

This self-study course will enable you to take control of your own personal development and career direction. It's a great way to prepare for a conversation with your line manager around your training needs. It will allow you to explore different learning practices and come up with your own action plan.

This course will help you to:

  • Identify where you want to be in the future

  • Consider skills and knowledge you need to develop to achieve your future goals

  • Accelerate your development with self-directed learning practices

  • Have the opportunity to ‘go deep’ with particular learning practices, such as building learning networks, working out loud, or dealing with any skills challenges.

  • Get ahead of your peers by actively managing your personal development

What have others said about this programme?

Helped me make a shift in my career

Emmanuel Yeboah, Development Engineer

During one of our sessions I expressed my thoughts about working as a CTO or starting my own tech company. With no business I need a playground to experience how it feels to create a tech start-up. Rachel’s advice and questions on how I would achieve this led me to an incubation program to experience being in a start-up whilst managing my daily job.

Fresh perspectives

Maria Hatzigeorgiadou, Growth Specialist

It’s good to have an outside view and that gives you a different perspective, like a different lens to look at things through than perhaps I would do on my own naturally or within my environment’ I didn’t even know that there are actually ways to improve the way you learn things, which obviously there are, and there are a lot of tools

Workshop feedback

Womelite group, Eindhoven

A good opportunity to self-reflect and make a plan. I've come up with more useful ways to spend my free time to achieve my learning goals. I now have 'stretch' goals to share my learning with others. An insightful and inspirational workshop!
