Short-term skills programs (SSPs)

SSPs provide students, recent graduates, and early-career professionals with the latest, industry-driven, skills to get ahead in their professional lives.

ForwardHop undertakes ongoing research on labour market information and mobility trends to identify skills requirements of emerging and traditional industry sectors. In addition to our research, we collaborate with industry leaders to validate the continued relevance of our programs, especially the content and focus areas.


We partner with leading Canadian, UK, Dubai, and Australia based academic institutions to design the skills programs based on our research and industry recommendations. Each program is delivered over four weeks or six weeks. During the program, participants attend forty hours of synchronous learning at our academic partners’ campuses. The program content is delivered by qualified instructors and relevant industry professionals. The learning is further enhanced by regular networking sessions and exposure tours.

ForwardHop’s SSPs are non-academic and are not part of a diploma or a degree; however, the programs are impactful and provide relevant skills for participants.


Program fees for all of our programs include accommodations, airport pick-up, and daily transportation through ForwardHop’s all inclusive service. Participants can focus on learning and networking while ForwardHop takes care of the rest.
