Learning Approach

Our training puts the learner at the center, using practical and fun learning activities, and easy-to-use materials. We share tools and techniques that can be immediately used in your work.

An eWorkshop is the online equivalent of being in a training room and learning together as a group but stretched out over a few weeks. The learning resources include interactive lessons, readings, videos, individual and team tasks, and a practical course assignment. 

There are no ‘real time’ sessions so you can study at a time that suits you, within the set module weeks. The course requires a time commitment of around five to seven hours every week.
