Our DNA

What makes a life-changing person? It’s all in our DNA.

It’s at the heart of our culture and defines how we want do things: how we engage with one another, and our employers, learners and stakeholders.

It’s what sets our expert people apart from the competition: five core molecules (with a sixth for our Leaders and Managers) made of a unique structure that encompasses the skills, behaviours and attitudes that will help our team succeed.

It’s about bringing together the best of all our individuals to make a powerful, successful and talented team.
