How to make the most of your course

Once you’ve signed up to your course, there’s plenty you can do to enhance your learning experience. From managing your time to getting organized, we can support you throughout your journey.

Our courses are all live, delivered over video link, so that you can maximize your experience and ask any questions there and then. Our teachers are passionate about what they do, and they want to help you achieve your business goals. Plus, you can also contact teachers outside of lessons if there’s anything you want to discuss in more detail.

Having a schedule to follow makes it much easier to motivate yourself to study, which is why our teachers have set up regular, weekly classes for you to take. We’ll send you a notification prior to your upcoming class so you don’t miss anything. You could even create a study plan to prepare for classes and ensure that your time is well spent.

When you’ve completed a course, please consider leaving a review. The teachers use your feedback to ensure that they’re providing the most relevant content possible in this busy and dynamic sector.

Why not become a teacher?

Do you have an interesting skill or talent which perhaps relates to your freelance business? You don’t need to be a professional teacher to start a live, online class on our interactive learning platform or through our learning partner, Learned.Live.
