Hello and welcome to 42courses.

Most e-learning is like eating broccoli – you know it’s good for you, but it’s not that enjoyable.

So we’ve built a platform to change that and make learning something that you can really enjoy.

We focus on the key skills needed in today’s fast paced, increasingly automated world, essentially we look for subjects you should have been taught at school but probably weren’t.

Each short course plays like a game, mixing videos, images, links and stories to create a compelling way to learn. Lessons are split into short chunks, so you can pick up your learning whenever and wherever it suits you!

You’ll earn points, climb leaderboards, and be inspired with ideas from other learners from all over the world. You’ll even get help and feedback from tutors whenever you need it.

We team up with real-world business leaders and brands to deliver practical skills that will make you more successful, easier to hire and easier to promote.

It’s like taking an internship with an industry pro, plus it’s fast, fun and practical, but without the coffee-making and you’ll never have to fetch anyone’s laundry.

When you pass you’ll get a signed, dated certification which you can easily add to LinkedIn, print out, or share online to show how marvellous you are.

Enjoy the learning, and join us to make yourself irreplaceable.
