IMMERSE

Some of the best ways to gain and develop your skills is through immersive experiences, where you get involved and apply, reflect upon and reinforce your skills in a practical way. Active participation in “IMMERSE” activities enables you to evidence your skills as you progress with your career. You can find out more about these activities under each training theme.

SUPPORT

You can also access “SUPPORT” resources, including online training, workshop recordings and ebooks whenever you need them.  Find them on Blackboard (link to blackboard).
