Unlock your potential and improve your prospects by learning new skills

As we continue the journey towards unlocking a better future, it’s time to think about skills that could help you to get the job you want or progress in your current role. Maybe you want to develop those digital skills like coding, or essential skills like numeracy, or even skills in demand like HGV driving.

The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to develop your skills out there. The even better news is that our online National Careers Service careers workshops can help you find the best one for you.

Unlock a better way ahead

There is no better time to think about refreshing your skills or learning new ones. The new Skills for Life website brings together all the skills offers that are out there into one place. The site showcases all the opportunities for adults to boost their skills and retrain including Skills Bootcamps, Free Courses for Jobs, and apprenticeships, to help you to improve your earning potential and get a better job.

Week 3 Identifying learning

In the first two weeks of our series of online careers workshops we have covered how to identify your interests and the skills you have. We have also looked at exploring different careers and identifying what vacancies are in your area and what skills employers are looking for. Now we move onto finding the learning opportunities that will help you to show employers you have what it takes.

This week is all about understanding the benefits of lifelong learning and understanding which opportunities suit you and that will give you the skills that you need to boost your employability.

Week 3 will cover:

  • The value of lifelong learning
  • An introduction to skills offers
  • Where to find other courses and learning opportunities
  • And more
