How would you describe CEPL?
CEPL specializes in preparing learners for the next stage of their leadership journey. It offers executive certificates, microcredentials and professional development courses. Whether you’re looking for increased responsibility, moving into a more senior leadership position or career progression, our goal is to support you in reaching that goal.
Who is the typical CEPL participant?
Our learners come to us with all sorts of different professional backgrounds and levels of experience. In the executive certificate programs, we typically see people who have been working in their field for three to five years and want to develop additional skills to progress into a more senior role. In the microcredentials and professional development courses, people are looking for ways to propel their career – for example, they could be in front-line positions in banking and taking courses to help them stand out.
That’s a different audience than we typically see elsewhere at Seneca. How are you tailoring the educational experience to best serve this new type of learner?
We deliver programs that provide professionals the opportunity to connect with, learn from and network with leaders in their industry. Additionally, our programming is conveniently offered in flexible formats to help working professionals achieve their career aspirations.
What feedback have you received from participants?
The feedback has been incredible. They love how much time they get to spend with the industry leaders who are teaching our courses and the networking opportunities. Each executive certificate has at least three guest speakers over the course of a program, providing additional time to learn from and connect with industry influencers. We’ve had students tell us that taking a CEPL course was one of the best decisions they’ve made all year. Some have even moved into new jobs immediately after obtaining one of our credentials.
