The flexibility of the asynchronous option was great for me as I have a baby at home. I could work through the modules at my own pace but still felt supported through the community forum & Zoom drop-in sessions. The project was a really practical and valuable learning experience. Being able to showcase what I’d done helped me to find a new job not long after finishing the course.
