The 12 Days of Christmas is one of those songs most of us know the first few lines – a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three French hens. But then it gets hazy. Four what now? And forget about remembering the eighth and ninth gifts! Getting a group of people together and asking them to sing it is a study in humanity and from experience, I know by the time we get around to the eleventh day, what actual present someone gave or received is anyone’s guess.
Plus if you think about it, the cost associated with the generous gift-giving of the 12 days is enormous. None of the items given are cheap or easy to find. The PNC’s annual Christmas Price Index aggregates the market price of all twelve gifts, with the 2017 list totalling a staggering $34,558.65, or $157.58 if you count each mention of an item separately.
However, Christmas is recognised as a time of giving, and in recognition of all that you will give this time of the year, we want to present you with something. Skillsoft is once again offering our annual Gift of Learning. Running from Monday 3rd December through to Tuesday 18th December, we will email you a complimentary course, one per day – Monday through Friday – for 12 days. The courses cover a variety of essential topics such as Business Skills and Management, Technology and Developer, Leadership Development, Productivity and Collaboration Skills, and Compliance. Within each course, you will get access to a range of learning options including videos and books, and we’ve selected in-demand and popular topics like artificial intelligence (AI), productivity, agility, Microsoft Excel, big data, unconscious bias, and project management.
Here’s just a sample of what you can expect.
The giveaway is valid across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Australia-New Zealand and India. To receive this incredible gift all you have to do is follow your region’s link below and fill in a short form.
All courses are hosted on Percipio, our award-winning intelligent learning experience platform. Percipio leverages highly engaging content that is curated into over 500 learning channels that Skillsoft continuously updates to ensure you always have the latest information.
