We use reflective and practical techniques for the most effective results, with each participant working through their mentoring hours within the course.

A live 2-hour interactive session with the facilitator every week and a 6 hour session for the Bootcamp. Participants are provided with the lesson content and breakaway sessions allow for the practical and reflective learning process.
