Unlock the potential within your workforce

  • When we embarked on the journey to equip members of our community with masterclasses that can help propel their careers, we sought to partner with an organisation that could provide us with great service, offer good tutorship, and create a seamless platform where our mentees could learn at ease.

  • The feedback from our Talent Development and Mentoring workstream cohort was very complimentary and everybody walked away with nuggets of wisdom and some real life actionable points to put to practice. The overall experience of dealing with Career Masterclass was pleasant and professional and we would love to partner with them again in the future.

    Talent Accelerator Programmes

    We work with learning and development (L&D) and diversity and inclusion (D&I) teams to design and execute high-impact, award-winning talent accelerator programmes that unlock the potential of talent within their teams.

    We have a track record of helping organisations achieve their goals of charting clear paths to progression for their ethnically diverse staff, inspiring diverse talent engagement, and fast-tracking high performing diverse talent into leadership.

    Our programmes provide an integrated approach to talent pipeline development and are tailored to suit your business objectives.

    On-Demand Learning Platform

    The Career Masterclass on-demand learning platform is unlike any other. No online learning platform champions the cause of underrepresented and ethnically diverse professionals and caters to their needs the way it does.

    Many professionals from ethnically diverse backgrounds do not have access to the same knowledge, information and networks as people from other groups. That is why the Career Masterclass platform exists- to democratise career growth.

    From in-depth masterclasses delivered by diverse professionals and instructors, to practical career stories that showcase how senior executives have navigated tricky career moments, every resource is designed to be actionable, engaging and relatable for professionals from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

    The Career Masterclass approach works. The average member spends at least 1740 minutes a month on the platform learning from a variety of valuable resources to help them meet their career goals.

    • Personalised content tailored to each member’s career moment and goals
    • 80+ masterclasses delivered by senior executives with proven real-world experience
    • Networking opportunities with community members
    • Plus case studies, event replays, workbooks, tip-sheets and more
