It’s no secret that distance or online learning can be a difficult and lonely journey to embark on. You need to be confident, have loads of self-discipline and extra-large doses of determination. The IQ Academy is renowned for offering a tremendous amount of support to its students and Ella Ndevu, Communications Specialist, shares how they are able to do this…

One of our core values is student support. In fact, it is such an integral part of who we are as an institution that we are on a constant drive to innovate and improve our support services. We have highly skilled and dedicated tutors, who through the use of a student portal, are able to communicate with and assist students with any academic or administrative information. We also give our students the option to phone in and speak to lecturers telephonically. In keeping with our slogan, we ‘go the distance’ and ensure that we take care of the finer details. Our aim is for the experience to be as pleasant and fulfilling as possible given the challenges related to it.

BL: That sounds awesome, Ella. What’s the benefit of studying via connected distance learning for our BossLadies?

IQA: An organisation as well as an employee’s skillset and resource base needs to be kept up to date with the latest developments within any industry. Customer needs and expectations must be met and exceeded. Upgrading your skills via short courses gives you, the individual that added advantage over your colleague or other interview candidates. It sets you apart and allows you to stand out and excel.

Short courses present the opportunity to challenge yourself, to empower yourself and to go the extra mile in terms of what you want to offer an employer. This makes you a greater asset. The more skilled an organisation’s employees, the more an organisation is able to achieve.
