Personal Management For Success

Course Fee Free

What is this course about?

Everyone wants to improve themselves, move from their current state to a better state. Right now, we are sure that you have things that you want to happen in your life. Maybe it's a new job, or a new relationship or just to develop yourself in some way. This course is about helping you take the next step in your journey. 
This course will teach you some things that successful and happy people have been doing for generations. Many such people pass these ideas to their children. Some of us were not so lucky to have a mother or father who taught us the basics of moving towards a better state. We just had to figure it out on our own. At Educate24, we hope you use this course as a tool to improve your life by giving you some principles to help you move forward.

Who should be doing this course?

Everyone who wants to change, grow or take the next step in their lives, but are unsure of where to start.

Learning outcomes

After completing this course, you should be able to understand the:

  • Principles of the journey that you are on;
  • How to grow mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally, financially and spiritually;
  • Qualities of successful people;
  • How to deal with setbacks;

Finally, we will give you the tools you need to “take the next step” in your life.

How is your course mark calculated? 

Your course mark is calculated using the average mark obtained in each of the chapter tests. In order to pass this course, you must obtain a final course mark of at least 50%. This means that even if you fail a few of the chapter tests, if your test marks in the other chapter tests are high enough you will still be able to pass the course. Good Luck!

Study at your own pace!

We’ve created our courses to suit your busy life! The duration of this course is based on a student guide where one 300 – 500 word article is read per day, and the assessment is done on a separate day after the relevant articles have been reviewed. But you can do the course in your own time and at your own pace. If you choose to do two readings per day, it will take you half of the estimated time, four readings per day means doing the course in a quarter of the time etc. We leave that decision up to you!

In the 6 chapters of this course you'll be covering the following areas:

CHAPTER 1 The Next Step
CHAPTER 2 Principles Of The Journey
CHAPTER 3 Growing
CHAPTER 4 Qualities Of Successful People
CHAPTER 5 Dealing With Setbacks
CHAPTER 6 How To Take The Next Step

My journey my aspirations.

Nelisiwe Sithole

Yooo don't know where to.start but all I can say is the course was easy to follow only if u have studied, it has thought me a lot of things about my aspirations n No to spend more than what u has thought me about my goals, if I have different goals is to break them into steps.and take one step at a time to achieve them. I might consider doing another course in the business management field that is what I'm planning to do Thanks educate24 for your offer it really made a different in my life
