  1. Choose a topic and get started. Whether it's a subject you know nothing about and want to improve, or skill set an employer has identified in a job ad, there's plenty of choices – and they're all free.
  2. Work your way through it, at your own pace. Watch videos and complete quizzes in Moodle to progress to the next section. Make sure you read the Welcome and Module instructions before you start.
  3. Complete the module to receive your certificate. Once you've submitted your answers and finished the module's survey, your responses will be sent to us for review. If you've completed all questions to a satisfactory standard, you'll be emailed a personalised certificate confirming what you've learned.
  4. Apply your new skills to your studies, work, volunteering and extracurricular activities. Login to Student Futures to record and reflect on what you've learnt. Many modules offer downloadable resources to use in the real world, and along with your certificate, use these to help explain your skills to future employers.
