The eLearning 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.
