Modules

Programme Style:

This programme is entirely comprised of 1-on-1 coaching. Our coaches are seasoned professionals in each of their areas, and their job is to coach you on what you want to learn within that module subject.
This means that a lot of this programme will be learner-led. Participants can pick what they want to learn about, letting their coach know of topics or areas they don’t need coaching on, so that they get the best possible value with their coaching.
