Course Overview

The program is delivered over 24 days, scheduled as four modules of five days (Sunday – Thursday) and a final module of four days (Sunday – Wednesday).We know this is a significant time commitment away from work in order to study with us. However, Oakwood will not cut corners in order to provide a shorter program – we want to give our students the best possible chance of success and at the same time, provide a real learning experience with immediate impact and relevance to your organizations.

You can participate in exactly the same way as if in a physical classroom. All you need is internet access. - The workshops are run over secure video chat and from the comfort and safety of your home. - You can interact with other students in the classroom, and the tutor is with you throughout the live session. - Course materials, resources and ebooks are all made available electronically. - There is also the opportunity for you to have 1:1 sessions with a tutor at the end of the session. - Access to our 24-hour Online Student Platform for support and guidance.

    We have been working with LEORON for the past two years and will be working with them again this upcoming year. The programs they delivered were fruitful and exciting and our organization has received positive feedback from the participants. What our organization aims to do is to provide at no cost training for all the private sector employees so that they may benefit from our offered programs in Innovation and Professional development. Leoron has helped us achieve this goal. We look forward to continuing this service and wish them the best of luck. Regards,
