The CPD Certified CAREER ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME ONLINE (CEPO) is a comprehensive online course that has been designed on the back of a best-selling career development book -The Graduate Code.

It is based on the premise that 'in every professional is a student wanting to learn and in every student is a professional waiting to earn and this course helps you to connect both realms.

  • Unit Comprehension: At the end of every unit, there would be exercises for each unit for you to undertake independently. These have been crafted with questions that demonstrate your understanding of the unit and comprehension of content that has been taught.

  • Module Research: At the end of every module, you would be given a set of short quizzes to investigate about your studies and or professional career. The idea is that through the action of personal investigation, you would better understand current issues, global trends, opportunities and dimensions that impacts on your current studies and professional career.

  • Programme Action: We believe that this course will not be effective enough unless you were able to develop some sort of a career plan of action at the end of the entire programme.
