Skills Development Academy(SDA)

Is there a skill you’re working on, to land that next job or contract? What if you could develop that skill through a real-world project – one that gives you a resume-enhancing experience, a sample for your portfolio, an update to your LinkedIn profile, and a story for your resume?

In the SDA, you will be given an opportunity to build and demonstrate a specific skill by means of a real L&D project for a “Client Organization.”
