Benefits of Digital learning for managers

The modules include real-life examples of good practice that learners can connect with, relate to, and learn from. They’re interactive; keeping people engaged throughout using activities, videos and providing time and encouragement to reflect.  They are a cost-effective way to support succession planning.

Learners and organisations use the modules flexibly and creatively – they use single modules to update learning, the full suite as an introduction to management, and embed the modules in more in-depth development programmes.

Module duration

Each module takes between 20 to 40 minutes to complete and  can be done at a time and a pace to suit the learner.
