How to be a Modern Learner and take control of your career

Transform your organisation with our Modern Learner Programme

Help your people to develop faster and more effectively by taking control of their own personal development and career direction. They’ll achieve their learning goals faster and develop the skills of self-directed learning they can use over and over again in their careers.

What a Modern Learner Programme can do for your organisation:

  • Increase employee engagement through supporting your people in having conversations about their own personal development and career direction
  • Reduce turnover and training costs through re-skilling employees where possible rather than recruiting new workers
  • Learning agility will help your people develop faster and more effectively, a key requirement for fast changing working environments
  • Support a learning and development strategy through developing skill-sets around self-directed learning
  • Help to create a learning organisation culture

Your questions answered:

Why do I need to support my employees to take ownership for their learning?

Workplaces and skills requirements are constantly changing, and more complex skills are needed. Having employees that can take ownership of their learning needs and draw on methods to meet those needs is what’s going to make the difference for organisations to be successful.

What is special about this Programme?

This is a unique programme that focuses specifically on awareness and a range of skills around self-development and personal learning. Attendees are given a ‘safe space’ to consider their own learning practices and to be challenged and supported to create goals and develop behaviours that will help them achieve their career goals.

How does this work?

This Programme includes four workshops held over eight weeks plus a Personal Development Workbook and additional tools to support learning in-between sessions. Workshops are 75 minutes in length and will be held on Zoom.

What additional support is available beyond the workshops to really make it stick?

Our group coaching session at the end will give you the opportunity to review and reflect on your learning and go deeper into any topic that you choose. Additional support for organisations can include a range of campaign materials to raise awareness of themes around self-development and learning. Our self-study option for the workshops is also available to you to go on your LMS or Sharepoint platform

During one of our sessions I expressed my thoughts about working as a CTO or starting my own tech company. With no business I need a playground to experience how it feels to create a tech start up. Rachel’s advice and questions on how I would achieve this led me to an incubation programe to experience being in a start-up whilst managing my daily job. This experience led me to securing my ideal next position.Emmanuel Yeboah - Development Engineer

The ‘Modern Learner’ workshop programme and its focus is unique. Rachel really gets people to think about their self-development and career journey in a different way. This was exactly what we needed, to help to grow a culture of self-directed learning.’ Cezary Kujawski, Training & Development Manager

The way Rachel described the learning journey really opened my eyes. I never thought of it like this before and it works. This is what led me to take up coaching. She has a different approach to learning methods and education and training and has helped me to think about learning in a broader sense and broaden out the ways I learn.Maria Hatzigeorgiadou, Growth Strategist
