FEATURES OF ONLINE TRAINING

All the same great content as the in-person training
All the content in the online training is based on the best materials from our in-person training which has been finely honed over twenty years by our highly skilled and experienced practice development coaches. The courses have been designed to make sure we cover all the key concepts, ideas and practice approaches fundamental to the strengths approach.
Fits around your life
For many of us, life is busy! This can make it difficult to get to in-person training, especially if we don’t live near a major city. Online training can be done anywhere, anytime. It is mobile-responsive so you can complete the training on your phone or mobile device. You can stop whenever you want, then simply pick up where you left off when it suits you. You can go back and revise previous sections that you found of particular value or interest as well.
We all learn differently
Some people prefer to learn in a quiet place, some people prefer to listen to music while they learn. Some people like to learn in small bitesize chunks and some people like to swallow everything in one mouthful. Online learning enables you to learn in your own way.
Beautiful, engaging and easy-to-use
All the online courses include a range of engaging images from our card sets, as well as videos and exercises. They have been designed to be visually inspiring, intellectually stimulating and very easy to navigate.« Read Less
