Free online courses from FutureLearn
The coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of us and our way of life. For many of us this means we have more time on our hands, giving us the opportunity to learn new skills, start a new hobby or focus on developing our careers.
Maybe you would like to spend that extra time learning new management and leadership skills, mindfulness for wellbeing and peak performance or learning more about decision making in a complex and uncertain world?
While we encourage all our members to keep up to date with their CPD during this time, we do also realise that many of our members may be facing financially uncertain times and the benefit of the FutureLearn online courses is that they are free.
FutureLearn offer a range of online courses for our members, allowing you to develop your leadership skills, progress your career or explore new passions.
Coronavirus may be taking a toll on both our physical and mental wellbeing. The below FutureLearn course collection can help you manage your own mental health and support others who are struggling.
How do they work?
FutureLearn’s courses are short and enable you to learn flexibly. The courses require just a few hours of time each week and can be completed at your own pace.
Courses can be completed for free or there is the option to upgrade to receive additional benefits such as a Certificate of Achievement, enabling you to show evidence of your drive, determination, and continued development.
You’ll also receive an online version to add to your CV and LinkedIn profile in the subject of your choice, whether that be turning ideas into action, growing a sustainable business, effective communications or learning about the power of social media.
