FAQ's

The program cost is $xxxxx. You’re required to confirmed payment arrangements prior to starting.

We accept credit cards and bank transfers and can organise invoices for business purposes. We are also now proud to be working with StudyLoans if you’d like to manage your cash flow.

Each workshop runs for three to four hours and we suggest you spend at least the same amount of time in between workshops in order to make the most out of the program.

You can of course spend less as everyone learns differently and has different goals. We’re here to support you achieving your goals – not make you fit our mold.

Everything you learn in a Plato Project program has been curated and developed in line with the insights and expertise of inspiring, successful, leading experts – our industry partners. We focus on the key areas that have driven their success, balanced with the things they are focusing on for future success – this ensures maximum relevance to you and your pursuits.

Helping you bring it all to life is your instructor / coach / facilitator. Each of these people are first and foremost unbelievably good teachers – which means they will ensure you learn and grow as their first priority – in addition to being successful in their own right!

It’s this combination which allows our programs to deliver genuine results.

We of course provide certification that you have completed the program which you can proudly display on your resume, LinkedIn and/or anywhere else. However, this in our opinion is only the smallest part. By completing the program you’ll be developing a capability which will take your career further and move you closer to achieving your goals.

If you’re interested in official accreditation speak to us about our university partnerships.

You’ll also become a part of our alumni who receive facilitated introductions to industry, ongoing events and support AND access to join any cohort into the future at no extra cost, in case you’d like to polish up on anything.

We exist to support individuals in better achieving their goals. Beyond the dedicated coach and advisor you can reach out to, the community (thousands strong) of like-minded individuals and a small, curated cohort you’ll move through the program with, we will also go out of our way to introduce you to our extensive network, provide ongoing advice wherever we can as well as continue to put on value-adding events for our valued alumni.

No. We have very purposefully not gone down this pathway so we can continue on focusing on the most up-to-date, industry relevant content and experiences – rather than being confined to some policies which in our opinion, don’t add value to our students.

If you’re looking for official accreditation though, please ask us about our partnerships.
