ESI’s Growth+ provides an immersive learning experience that develops the sales skills that employers are looking for today – online and applied on the job in real time
ESI’s stackable credential model provides certification milestones learners achieve as they complete eight separate units of learning. Each certification milestone is an upgrade of and replaces the previous certification issued.
The Professional Diploma has been credit rated by Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) at 20 academic credits on the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 8. It is issued by ESI (www.esinstitute.com). The credit points show how much learning is involved in achieving a qualification and this credit rating equates to over 200 notional hours of learning.
Learning includes core online instruction materials; an experimental mode where learners can reflect and test the concepts they have learned in their own working context; and a wide range of devices and exercises to drive real time on-the-job application of what they have learned. Learning is assessed and behavioural change is recorded via a number of artefacts.
Artefacts are submitted by participants for each unit, and these are assessed by ESI. The artefacts include:
ESI’s assessment rubric has been approved by its accreditation partner, GCU, and is subject to an annual audit performed by GCU.
Following are the eight units and the learning outcomes of each.
