Your Learning Journey

Blended offer

While learning online offers you time-flexibility and the ability to study anywhere in the world, we are aware that the best learning is done in a peer-learning community. This is why, each module is designed to help you get the most out of your learning experience, with a combination of trainer input, interactive activities and peer-engagement during live sessions.


The course is also supported by a comprehensive Entrepreneurship Policy Toolkit and a module-specific playbook, which you are able to freely access to further aid your self-study.


A certificate of attendance is awarded after each module, and certification of course completion awarded after successful completion of all 4 modules, and a closing event will be held to mark this occasion.

Once you register, you will then receive your course welcome pack by email.
We will send a calendar reminder 1 week, 1 day and 1 hour before each module.
The future is co-created
