As we head into the Christmas break, you might have thought about experimenting with a short course? It is an opportune time. With the world feeling like it’s more or less on pause – now could be the perfect opportunity to look into something that inspires and energises you.
Why Short-Courses are worth it?
You get a sense of the subject matter without having to put down a major time or financial investment. You won’t necessarily master all the details in a short -time frame, but you will (and this bit is crucial….) discover if you want to explore the subject matter further or not.
Short-Courses help to give the gift of self-awareness. And some tangible skills in a quick time frame. Sounds good?
All right – so what are the options?
