Giving Back – Free Online Courses


Our Giving Back Programme

Our Giving Back Programme works on the principle that everyone has the right to a quality education, regardless of their situation. But sometimes circumstances beyond their control prevent people from accessing quality learning. We overcome those barriers and give everyone an equal opportunity to experience a first class education through the free online courses delivered by our Giving Back Programme. By providing free online courses to people who couldn’t otherwise access them, Continuing Professional Development and its customers and partners pay it forward and create a positive social impact.

How it works

1. IT STARTS WITH YOUR PURCHASE

Everything starts with your purchase. Once courses are purchased, we collaborate with our Giving Back Partners to distribute the same number of courses (but not necessarily the same course) that our customers buy, to people in need. People who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do these courses.

2. MAKE A MATCH

Continuing Professional Development works with our Giving Back Partners to match the right type of online courses to appropriate course users who meet our criteria. We are currently setting up this process with our Giving Back Partners.

3. TAKE THE FREE ONLINE COURSE 

The selected course users are enrolled and take the free online courses, sharing the same opportunities and access to our expert course facilitators as other participants. Because all courses have an expert facilitator students are always supported and can reach out anytime for expert advice. This enhances learning and course completion.

We’re always learning. We’ll assess the impact of our giving, through feedback from our Giving Back Partners and course participants. Then we’ll adapt, to make it more effective.
