Self-directed learning


How do you meet your day-to-day challenges more effectively and confidently, driving your personal and professional development and discovering how to be the best version of yourself, not just at work, but at home too?

Our new Discover Learning toolkit is packed full of content (over 2,700 at our last count) - videos, audio, animations, bite-sized top tips, self-assessment forms, how to guides, and more. 

It’s a fully responsive site, so you can access its content anytime, anywhere. So, if you're looking to power up your presentation skills while on a walk, discover better ways for a work-life balance from your desk, or boost your emotional intelligence while sat in a tree, you can. Whatever way you prefer to digest information, we'll have the content for you.

To guide you through the system we will be offering the Dicover Learning - Overview webinars. For further details please see below:
