All the lessons take place within an online classroom, but students don’t study alone. A team leader, who is a domestic worker herself, will invite new students to join a chat group. The class interacts and participates together, led by the team leader who has already completed the course. There is a maximum of 20 students per group chat, which enables everyone to participate and feel comfortable in asking questions. You can mute the class chat discussion to avoid being disturbed at work.

Yes! At the end of this programme, a certificate of completion is issued. Although this is not an official educational certification, accreditation or diploma, it’s something to be very proud of!
