Where will you be at the end?
At the end of this experience, you will feel full of possibility, you will have reconnected with what really makes you tick, you will see the world and your place in it differently. You will be engaging with ideas, opportunities and people that you can’t even see today. This is a practical 10 week programme to help you design a career on your own terms.

You will have delivered a range of projects that have reconnected you with how fulfilling work can be.

Absolutely mind blowing!
I went into the experience feeling drained and stuck, ready to quit my job and run away. I’ve left the career accelerator course feeling absolutely energized and positive about the future, ready to tackle whatever it may bring!
A fantastic and worthwhile investment
The Career Accelerator is special, you really get to test out your career dreams and it has a strong bias not just for reflection but for putting curiosities into practical action. Put your heart into it – and it will stretch you – and your mindset and world view will shift, and along with it your sense of the possible.
I’ve just completed the CCA. All I can really say is that if, having read the course description you feel this might be exactly what you are looking for if only its as good as it sounds, then you’re in luck because it is absolutely as good as it sounds! For me personally it exceeded every possible expectation.
What you’ll learn
