The way we learn new skills is changing

Kudos on the visual by Roberto Ferraro

Not towards more certifications but longitudinal learning over time

And I love it!

So do my clients → Why?

1. Traditional 2-day certifications introduce theory 

↳ But don't allow enough time for practice 

2. Spaced repetition - [Think Duolingo]

↳ Like more reps in a gym - Practice aids remembering your learnings

3. Our needs change [Just like all plans!]

↳ A flexible syllabus lets learners re-prioritise what they learn next

4. Additional feedback loops with your trainer

↳ Enables practice AND reflection - Catching errors earlier

5. Reduced cognitive overload 

↳ Making it less like cramming for an exam

To be clear - I've got nothing against 2-day certifications or those that deliver them.

I just believe that developing:

- Competence

- Confidence

- Capability

- And Mastery

Is best achieved over time
