Some key things to know, that you may have questions about:

There are no limits to the number of staff who can undertake the modules.
Most modules don’t require people management and staff can pick and choose what modules are most relevant for their professional development. For example staff don’t need to have had direct reports to understand ‘Leading Others’ – it also applies to being a leader more generally in the organisation or community
You and your staff can sign up at any time if you want to take up the learning opportunity – application is not time bound

If you/your staff would like to take up this offer, please complete the expression of interest form, which also includes greater detail on the modules above, the hours involved and the benefits. The MBA team will check the EOI regularly and invite any new applicants to join in the self-paced learning.
