Week 3: Learning about yourself


This week is all about you. Learning is an individual experience which is different for each person, depending on the qualities, knowledge and skills they have already developed. So it is important to take an audit of where you are at now, before you move forward.

Week 3 of Succeed with learning focuses in turn on qualities, knowledge and then skills, encouraging you to think about what the words mean and what the unique blend is that makes you who you are today.
