About the Learning Journey

Learning Journeys are designed as a summary of the key points from the core topic.

Why this is course valuable? 

This is a chance to reflect on the core points covered in the topic, and consider them back in a workplace content. This allows you the options to try and apply the learnings weekly, so they become habits.

As part of this journey, you will have the opportunity to revise the key concepts, complete reflection questionnaires, and set actionable goals. 

Each week you can reflect on the previous weeks goals and create new ones, allowing the key points from the topic to be explored one at a time in the workplace. 

What is in the course?
This 7 week online self-paced, self-assessment includes short videos, a summary of key points and goal setting. 

They are specifically designed to ensure that the learning lasts and can be applied to the workplace. 


  • review key summary points
  • create actionable goals

About our Blended Learning options

We have flipped the classroom:


To ensure the best use of time is achieved we have flipped the classroom. The optional independent self-paced online ecosystem we have designed, blend any workshops (face to face or digital) to ensure participants can upskill themselves and dive deeper into the topic. 

It ensures that any face-to-face / digital workshop time is effectively used for active facilitation & collaborative activities, that clarify concepts and contextualize knowledge through the application, analysis, planning and problem-solving. These courses are educationally sound, academically researched, and business orientated.

Who are they for? & How are they engaged?

The online courses can be used by 

1) a company or team (purchased as part of the CORE workshop package, or as an add on at a later stage.)

2) an individual wanting to upskill themselves (by purchasing them independently.) If you are using these as 'add ones' from a paid core workshop, contact us for discounted codes.
