Lockdown is the perfect time to boost your skills with an online polish or develop new skills ready for when work picks up again. You can also use it as an opportunity to embed your learning and development.
Why is it important to be boosting the skills of you and your team?
Learning and development is important to ensure you are as skilled as you can possibly be in your current roles and help you prepare for the future. You will find you feel more interested and stimulated by your job as your company invests in your skills and provides the opportunity to learn something new.
Working from home may also be starting to lose its appeal. Keep yourself motivated by learning something new. Pick the course that suits your needs, either developing a skill you already have, or learning about something completely new that you are interested in. Who knows what skills you may need in the future, you should take the opportunity to invest in your future.
Boost skills quickly and cost effectively using online training courses
Online courses are a great way to learn. The best thing about learning online is the flexibility. If you do your learning online, you can fit it around everything else. All you need is access to the internet. Courses are available 24 hours a day, so it is really easy.
You can pick the topics you need and complete them at a time and pace that suits you. Our courses adjust themselves to suit the pace of the individual taking the course. If your colleagues decide on the same course, you can share your progress and discuss the course together.
There are a good range of courses on business skills available and you can brush up your social media skills, learn to delegate, perfect your presentation techniques, learn how to manage stress and find out everything you need to know about the General Data Protection Regulations.
Online training can teach practical skills to regulated standards
If you want to learn about Health & Safety, we have courses on First Aid as well as Food Safety. Fire Marshall and Health & Safety at Work courses ensure you are trained to keep to a high standard of health and safety at work, a requirement for many roles in the workplace.
In Health & Social Care we offer courses on Mental Health Awareness, Infection Control, End of Life Care, Dementia Awareness and Safeguarding Adults and Children. These will help you specialise in your job and offer the best service at work.
Our courses are fully approved and you get a certificate at the end.
