Course Description

Certificate in Personal Development – 10 Week – Delivered via Zoom

International College for Personal and Professional Development (ICPPD)

This Personal Development Course is aimed at participants who are seeking to understand themselves more fully.

Perhaps you are interested in a professional training, or you want to become more fully the human being that you are and share your unique gifts with others either personally or/and professionally?

ICPPD believes that Personal Development is a lifelong process. It’s a way for people to assess their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realise and maximise their potential. Personal Development is the conscious pursuit of personal growth by expanding self-awareness and knowledge and improving personal skills.

Those skills include your mind, your body, your spirit as well as your level of success in all areas of life, however you may define that. The ultimate goal of Personal Development is to be a self-realised human being. That means living consciously at your full potential and reaching real happiness in your life. ICPPD supports a holistic ethos in all its programmes.

Increased personal growth and  development and good mental health is the goal for many men and women. It includes those who suffer from problems in their relationship with others, or who suffer emotionally with feelings of low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression.  It also includes individuals who are marginally successful or even very successful in life, but who want to improve their efficiency, their ability to be and feel intimate  and relate to others, and/or their general level of satisfaction with, and enjoyment of living.

Personal Development deals with how you look at the world and how you see yourself in the world, which then determines how you act in the world. Are you a victim or a winner? It’s not really important what others expect from you. What really matters is what you expect from yourself. Personal development is, after all, a personal pursuit. It’s about the journey.
