Welcome to your communication learning journey. We've designed this learning programme to boost your communication skills and get you thinking and acting like a communication pro. Using a wide range of materials, from games to videos, you will step through different levels of learning, earning badges as you go.

Why is communication as a skill so important?

"Communication makes the world go round,"
said Sir Richard Branson, owner of the Virgin Group.

He also states "Communication enables human connections, it allows us to learn, grow and progress. It's not simply about speaking or reading, but about understanding what exactly is being said - and in some cases what is not being said. Communication is the most important skill any leader can have." As far as we are concerned, this does not only apply to leaders. Good communication is important for anyone who wants to be influential.

How does this work?

There are three stages to your learning journey. Engage, participate and demonstrate. In each section you will be asked to engage with different materials. As you work your way through we will track your engagement and as you achieve each stage you will be awarded a badge. The first two stages are digital based, interacting with videos, podcasts and of course, our fab game. The third stage is more practical. It's an opportunity for you to show us what you've got. The demonstrate stage is about sharing your communication skills with your cohort and to get recognition of your communication skills in action.
