Upskilling for a changing job market

The last 2 years have been challenging years for many people. If you are looking for work but struggling to get a new job, maybe now is the time to look at your qualifications and skills.

Think about what you can do to boost your chances in a competitive and rapidly changing job market.

Maths and English qualifications

Most employers look for a functional Skills Level 2 / GCSE grade 4/C in each subject, so English and maths skills are important.

We offer English and maths qualifications from beginners to GCSE. All are fully funded and free.

This year, most of our courses are available to study online or face-to-face classes.

Essential digital skills

Now more than ever, being confident using a computer to create documents, research information, and communicate by email and video conferencing are essential skills. Most employers now expect people to have digital skills.

Do you need to develop your digital skills and knowledge? Whether you are new to computers or have a bit more confidence, we can help.

Our essential digital skills course offers you the opportunity to take a digital skills qualification at either beginners entry level or level 1. All qualifications are fully funded and free.

Book a ‘making choices’ session with us to find the right course for you
