Intensive Courses from happy

Intensive courses have been created specifically for those who need to learn a great deal of content at a faster pace. Each one is focused on increasing your productivity, and building a substantial expertise in just a single day. These courses will be longer, faster and more intensive than a standard course. If you can keep up, the rewards will definitely be worth the effort.

Group Learning Events

If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.

We can tailor the content to your team, and host the workshop inhouse at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.
