ExS is a short self-directed learning programme that can help you to develop your executive skills. Executive skills are the higher-order thinking skills essential for self-management and academic success. We all have our own particular strengths and weaknesses and by understanding what these are, we can then play to our strengths and make accommodations or try to develop weaker skills. This online programme will help you develop this self-awareness so that you can begin the journey to improvement if necessary.
