 We develop training programs to build an entrepreneurial mindset. Our highly specialised career coaches create learning environments to improve critical skills for learners and teachers. 

Modules of the program

Skill training, work experience and career design. All in one program.

overview

A new approach to work experience

  • Real world problem solving and tangible deliverables

    Our experienceships (micro-internships) provide students with the opportunity to work in groups, activate their skills and solve company challenges.  This is exactly the type of experience hiring managers want to see on LinkedIN profiles, on cv and during interviews.  This opportunity will create tangible deliverables and professional stories to convey participants’ value to a future employer.  
  • Student learning and growth is THE goal

    A traditional internship is designed by a company to solve THEIR short-term needs, not students’.  If a stack of files needs to be organized it will always fall on the intern. With our micro-internship model; however, student learning is at the center of the experience.  Coaching, supporting curriculum and career design and other attributes keep the student’s growth the most important outcome.

  • Hybrid, project learning sprints

    The future of work is short-term, project-based sprints which leverage a hybrid working environment.  Our micro-internships are designed to mirror the evolving workspace and give them the skills to succeed.
