      Help us to create a tailor made and convenient course for you and your group

      Your Curious Vitae

      Browse our courses and simply add the ones that you like to your own myCV page.

      Inspire us with your own ideas or themes that you would particularly like to focus on.  Or just leave it to us! 


      Tell us where you would like to meet - perhaps in your own home, your office or a nearby cafe?

      Our courses can be delivered before, during or after the working day. Your tutor will fit in with your busy lifestyle.

      Tailor Made

      Our tutors adapt their style and knowledge to create a bespoke course for you and the group.

      There is no set curriculum, nor any exams.  Sociable Learning is for everyone and just for fun!

        Your Course

        Share ideas, debate and grow your knowledge with a one hour face to face tutorial per week.

        Watch films, read books, listen to podcasts; visit museums and galleries together in your group or in your own time.

        Course Characteristics

        Curious Vitae courses are bespoke and will vary in style, level and duration


        Critical analysis, creative writing, presentations and debate.


        Tutor led and informal, focused on discussion and exchanging ideas.


        Centred around practical activities, debates, trips and events.

        Step 1: Consultation & Planning

        We discuss your needs and objectives as an organisation, getting to know more about the teams when considering the best way to design the programme. 

        For example, would you like to bring existing teams closer together or improve cross team collaboration? Perhaps compressing the hierarchy or bringing front and back offices together?

        You may prefer to leave us to put the groups together.

        Step 2: Employee Insights

        Using our website and course ideas as inspiration, your employees build their own Curious Vitae.

        We prepare an Employee Insights Report to map the demand across your organisation. This gives us a blueprint from which to design the programme as well as a fascinating insight into personal development interests and objectives. 

        Step 3: Programme Development

        We prepare an initial profile for each course and invite a short list of potential tutors and commercial partners from our network to submit a course proposal.

        We select the most appropriate tutor and they design a bespoke course.

        The programme and course outlines are agreed and all commercial terms are finalised.

        Step 4: Roll out

        Each student receives an email from their tutor including all of the necessary information for their tutorial programme, detailing any pre-course work as well as timing and logistics.

        Courses begin!

        Step 5: Feedback, Rating & Review.

        Our priority is to deliver high quality courses for our clients, using the most engaging and passionate experts.

        The courses evolve over time and we seek constant feedback from both students and tutors to help us maintain these high standards.  

        Employee engagement is an investment we make for the privilege of staying in business.
