It enables employees to explore your organisational career framework in a new way, learning about the wide range of career options and career paths available, and assessing themselves against the requirements of a function at a particular level.

  • Unlock Potential with Be Bold in your Career

    Be Bold is a pioneering online career development course, developed from 20 years experience working with top international employers. It is designed to unlock an individual’s career potential in just 2 hours a week.

    Organisations today need agile employees who use their talents to the full, build new capabilities and transition easily between roles.

    Individuals want to develop and grow in their careers, yet lack career management skills.

    Often there’s an over-reliance on managers to provide career growth, and if this isn’t forthcoming, employees get stuck – or leave.

    Be Bold is a scaleable, flexible course that equips people to drive their career development and prepare for the future of work.

    • “I have become the driver for my own career”

    • “Inclusive, encouraging, motivating”

    • “It pushed me out of my comfort zone”
