2017 has arrived and it is a great time for us to begin thinking about how we can improve on our skills to make ourselves more attractive to employers, more efficient in our jobs and a better trained person! Advancing your education is always a good idea, but the New Year tends to focus our thoughts down a little more to actually doing, rather than just thinking about it.
January is a busy time for online courses, many of them have their first intake of the year now. This means you may struggle to find a course with places still available, especially courses which have any aspect of real time interaction involving lecturers or needing to visit physical buildings. If you find you have missed out on the January start date, don’t panic, there is likely to be another intake in a few weeks. Online courses can often offer more frequent start dates than traditional college courses, merely because the content is available online rather than in person.
If you aren’t sure if a course is the right one for your needs, don’t forget to contact the provider to chat to them about your options. The people running the courses have a wealth of experience and knowledge and will be able to guide you in choosing the perfect course for your skill level and needs.
