About Me

Learned.Live is a fully interactive learning platform for adults offering live, online classes taught via Zoom with a unique range of subjects. The site was born during the first UK lockdown of 2020 to answer a need for useful, online classes for adults.

The pandemic has shown us how fast society can change, and that we need new skills to adapt, thrive and survive. Economic recovery will depend on the business’ ability to rebound as fast as possible. SMEs need support to upskill and equip themselves with the know-how to seize new market opportunities and stay competitive. Large organisations need new ways to show authentic, genuine support for their people in today’s low-touch economy.

We provide organisations with cost-effective ways for their teams to acquire new skills, train, engage and unite outside traditional settings with an easily scalable, remote model suitable for the global e-learning market, which is predicted to reach a value of $375 billion by 2027.

If you are serious about freelancing then this is a good place to start. You get the basics covered off but it is not so long and detailed that you need to set aside masses of time attending the course. The clases are spread over a few weeks and are fairly short and intensive.
I took the course for sales and project management but I found the How to Increase Your Personal Value class interesting and will do more on this as family members have seen a difference in my attitude. I work in beauty therapy so being positive is important.
The price is reasonable and as a people person, I preferred having a live teacher, not videos.
I would recommend this class to freelancers.

I was shocked on how good the course was! I have had some other online courses before with different providers, but this one was outstanding. It was all done live in a very user-friendly way and the instructors were easy to understand. I was able to take notes and learn. Overall I was very impressed and would 100% recommend this course and Learned.Live for any training course you need.

I am not new to freelance work but wanted to make it more profitable. Found ‘How to build powerful portfolios and how to pitch clients’ with Mara Simmons helpful for this and also learned loads from the Project Manage section with Peter Philip’s.
