The internationally-accredited certification programme, developed in partnership with the University of Suffolk and Connect CEE – delivered by professor Andrew Taylor Ph.D.
This program would benefit especially HR professionals, either beginners or mid-level specialists, but it is extraordinarily practical and useful for all kinds of entrepreneurs and business managers. Talent Academy is an internationally accredited program, which delivers global standards of quality to its participants.
The program has two levels (Foundation and Advanced), each including six modules. This is the Foundation-level program, but we have an Advanced-level program as well.
After completing every level of the program, participants will be granted an international Talent Management certification issued by the University of Suffolk, United Kingdom. The Certification is issued separately, for each entire program of six modules: Advanced, respectively Foundation. Students can follow both programs and get both Certifications.
Talent Academy is an internationally-accredited program that delivers global standards of quality to its participants. Designed to be both intellectually rigorous and immediately practical, the modular format of this program minimizes impact upon working time, whilst maximizing job relevance. Modules may be taken individually as stand-alone learning.
However, the connection between modules ensures that learning across the program is both logical land interconnected. The use of case studies, experiential tools, and group interactions are central to ensure that learning is interactive and impactful.
Every module will have a one-day length and will be delivered in Cluj-Napoca, one per month, based on a calendar that will be decided together with the participants. The courses will be delivered in face-2-face meetings, in safe and comfortable conditions. At the end of the program, to get the certification, the participants will present a project on how the learning will e practically applied in their own work and organizations.
The Talent Academy program offers two levels of learning:
Level one – Foundation is designed for less experienced employees (students, juniors, or Mid-specialists) and provides a solid foundation, from which to deliver coherent operational outcomes.
Level two – Advanced is designed for more experienced employees (Mid- or Senior-level specialists, HR managers) to be able to make a more strategic contribution to the organization.
