Weekly team coaching & collaboration
Coaching and feedback
Every week you are invited to join a live coaching call with our team of experienced coaches and fellow students. Our coaches will provide feedback on previous module project activities to ensure you keep on track.
We will provide opportunities to collaborate with your coach and fellow students on an industry project which everyone will work on independently (no group work).
Need support? Need advice? Help with your project activity? Ask your question before or ask us during the live coaching call and we will endeavour to answer and share so everyone can learn.
Convenient & recorded
We will schedule the call midweek (5:30pm AEST between Tuesday and Thursday). If you can’t attend a coaching session, they will be recorded and uploaded to the portal so you can watch them in your own time.
