Time management and personal planning
Learning is part of a jigsaw comprised of many parts and everyone learns in different ways. Whilst these online personal and professional development courses are free for anyone to access over the internet, our full-day open courses are designed with group interaction at their heart. The feedback from our clients tells us that a significant proportion of the learning experience is gained from interacting with their peers during the workshops. If you are located in the United Kingdom and would like to attend one of the full-day open courses to engage in group learning with your ICAEW peers, please visit our upcoming full-day open courses page.
Effective time management is a free CABA courses developed from research by Dr Hilary Lindsay, which identified career adaptability as a critical element of lifelong learning and professional development.
