Studying for a course takes time and commitment and, naturally, you want to know that you’ll come out of the course not only with a new qualification but with a set of skills that will attract employers in your chosen career field.
Luckily, this alternative education pathway not only hones personal skills such as time management and communication; but our Upskilled courses have all been designed to ensure your new qualification has a tangible link to industry. We do this in two ways:
Work Skills and Teaching Methods
Upskilled’s courses all place high value on job readiness. Most of our courses offer the opportunity to gain valuable work skills through both our course content and our interactive teaching and learning methods.
Vocational Education and Training
Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications have been specifically developed to ensure that those taking them gain skills that meet industry requirements. This means that if you fall into one of the categories below, a VET course will be the perfect choice:
- Entering the workforce for the first time
- Training for a career change
- Upgrading skills for an existing career
- Re-entering the workforce after a career break
VET courses cover a huge variety of industry-related programs, for most types of employment. A small proportion of jobs, for example teachers and doctors, will also require a university degree but another benefit of many VET courses is that they are a lead-in point for Bachelor qualifications.
As a question that many are likely to ask when studying online is ‘Will this course help me meet my career goals?”, we’ve included answers to two other frequently asked questions in the links below.
