Have you ever found yourself wanting to learn something new? Have you considered going back to college but don’t have the time? How about an online course? I was recently given the opportunity to do just that with NCC Home Learning.
Looking through the huge list of courses on their website I was spoilt for choice, but at the back of my mind there has always been something I’ve been interested in but never dared take the plunge, and that’s Life Coaching. As soon as I spotted they did a course for that too I signed straight up.
The course is usually priced at £408-£432 depending on whether you choose the online or paper version, but at the time of writing there is 20% off all courses during August. Once you’ve paid for your course you’re given a username and password that will take you directly to your own dashboard where you can access all your courses and the relevant materials (this is for the online version of the course, there is a paper version too where the course materials will be delivered by post).
The Life Coaching course is set over 8 modules followed by an exam and each module has downloadable material for you to read and a number of exercises to complete. The course covers the very basics from what Life Coaching is and the different areas it can cover to the skills required and how to apply them as well as several case studies.
As this is a home learning course you have the freedom to work on it whenever you like, making it easy to fit in around other commitments, a definite plus for me.
I’ve only just started the course and am about half-way through module one. Already some of the exercises have really opened my eyes and made me reassess a few areas of my life and I can’t wait to learn more and start putting things into action.
I will keep you all updated with how I am getting on during my Monthly Bucket List posts (I’m aiming for at least one module a month, starting September) and then I will write another more in-depth review once I’ve completed the course.
