Our much anticipated Alumni Network and its exclusive benefits programme is now live! The singular intention of the Alumni Network is to build a community of creative business thinkers who want to grow themselves and their organisations through lifelong learning.
Unlike many other modern educational institutions, we have a uniquely human touch that makes the Red & Yellow experience quite special.
Those who have studied with Red & Yellow know that it feels like you’re part of a family. A family with a deep legacy dating back to our roots in 1994. This school is a special place and we wanted to do something special for all those who have spent time with us. The Alumni Network is that.
The biggest benefit is the Network itself. Red & Yellow has been producing business leaders for 25 years and their creative genius has seen them spread their talents to great organisations in every corner of the globe. We want you to be able to tap into the power of this network.
We love knowing about the astounding things our Alumni are up to – so please take a second to update your email address and exciting career progressions. It also means you won’t miss out on exciting news.
Then the education benefits
As an Alumni Network member, we know you are a sponge. We know you want to know more, to learn more. You are entitled to exclusive discounts on our courses and programmes, exclusive access to events held both on our campus or online and great education and conference opportunities with our partners. Oh, and to spread the love even further, your friends and family get 5% discount of all our online courses.
Speaking of partners…
We are adding them all the time. We’ve found great deals for you on a range of products and services from Apple products through to magazine subscriptions.
