can help maximise your full potential

Learning new skills can go a long way in enhancing your life, whether that’s in preparation for a new job, helping you in your existing job or just improving your social life.

We can support you in all of these areas, giving you the skills to help you communicate effectively with others and enjoy life.

For example, as 95% of jobs are now advertised online and many roles involve using a computer, it is important that you can search and apply for jobs online and be confident using a computer.

The Learn My Way platform helps you develop your computer skills whether you are an absolute IT beginner, wanting to refresh your skills or are more advanced and wanting to get a qualification. The modules can be accessed from anywhere with internet access, at any time and you can work through them at your own pace.

There’s an opportunity to continue your learning through further accredited courses or become a digital champion so you can pass on your knowledge to others. Using the internet is a powerful tool to increase your knowledge and in turn transform your life.

We also offer free bite-size courses in a range of topics that will help you get on in life. Many of these are fun and can only take 15 minutes to complete – so if you’re waiting for a bus or a train, why not put the time to good use and learn something new.

Courses on offer include those covering:

  • English vocabulary
  • Polite English
  • Job interviews
  • Self-employment
  • Building websites
  • Nutrition
  • Life support
  • Reducing stress
  • Positive approaches to life
