Online Learning - Skills Options for Adults in Somerset

Online learning is an effective mode of study that offers an exciting way to learn new skills, gain a qualification or build on existing skills and knowledge.  It can help with your career progression and development, which can in turn lead to higher earning capacity and status. If you are currently working from home or furloughed due to the current lockdown, it could be the perfect time for you to get yourself in a better position for when you are able to return to work.  Alternatively, it can be something you choose to do just for fun!  Either way, what better time than now to start something new and achieve your goals?

If you are an employer, having your employees working towards a qualification online is an effective way of addressing skills gaps within your workforce.  With the current complexities of starting a qualification via traditional delivery methods due to Covid-19, many are finding it a favourable way to focus on their professional development.

It provides access to study remotely without face to face contact with a tutor in the classroom, but still with all the support in place that you will need from the training provider through digital means.  Providing that you have access to an internet connection, you can choose when and where to study, to fit in around work, family and other commitments.

There is a huge range of nationally recognised qualifications and short courses to choose from, irrespective of your chosen industry or level of study.  Funding is subject to eligibility criteria.

Please remember to stay safe online.  If you need any further advice on this, information about online safety can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-staying-safe-online
