Online courses you could be doing right now
Lisa McManus, Operations Manager at Interserve Learning & Employment tells us which five online training courses she recommends for gaining self-development without leaving the house.
The daily routine has well and truly been thrown out of the window for many of us. Millions of people can be found working from home, slotting in the latest interactive workout and using apps to contact family members. I know this because I have done all of these things today.
But it’s important that we don’t stop caring for ourselves when we get busy. As an Operations Manager at Interserve Learning & Employment, one of England’s top training providers, I’m a huge advocate for personal development and growth.
My team and I have worked with thousands of people over the years. We have helped people who are long-term unemployed to secure jobs and parents to transition back into work after breaks. Our training courses have been a springboard into new industries like hairdressing, childcare or beauty, and many people have achieved qualifications they never thought they could.
I’ve put together a list of my top five training courses, which can all be completed flexibly and from home. They are also fully-funded* so subject to eligibility, won’t cost you anything to complete.
- Self-employment and understanding enterprise
The level 1 award in Understanding Enterprise is aimed at those who are self-employed or are looking to work for themselves. This course gives an introductory overview of the business development lifecycle.
- Safeguarding and Prevent
