Exam and Interview Prep (5 hours)
Do you have a very particular goal in mind? An exam or set of exams that you are focussed upon or a particular interview or set of interviews that you would like to prepare for? Our exam and interview prep classes are designed to do two things. The first is to ensure you have the key skills to succeed: revision techniques and exam preparation for example or public speaking and presentation skills. The second is to pair that skillset with the particular knowledge that will be relevant in the exam(s) or interview(s) you are targeting. And that is where our bespoke packages come into their own - you will be paired with tutors that have both particular subject knowledge as well as the skills you will require to succeed.
Leadership Skills (5 hours)
What does it take to be a young leader and global citizen in today's world? In a world as bustling and busy as ours is today, stepping up to make a difference can be a daunting task. Through this online course, students consider questions of leadership, youth involvement, the role of the internet and social media in 21st-century leadership, global vs. local engagement, and how leadership can be used to make the world a better, kinder place. In parallel to these theoretical discussions, students are challenged to consider the most important issues facing the world today and to develop their own forms of leadership. Workshops on public speaking, presentation skills, interview skills, exam and revision help, academic writing, and more, will reinforce leadership discipline and ideals and help tomorrow’s young leaders to achieve their goals!
Study Skills (5 hours)

Complement your passion for learning with concrete skills to help you thrive and succeed, through sessions covering everything from revision techniques and exam preparation, to essay writing, interview skills and more.
