Following the Prime Minister’s speech about retraining and adult skills, the UK government has launched a new Skills Toolkit with additional courses that target employers, prospective learners and employees among others.
One in three people have used online learning to help them get a better job. On average, online learning can boost your annual pay by £3,640 too. A 2018 LinkedIn survey showed that more than half of the senior leaders and managers surveyed identified soft skills – like leadership, problem solving and project management – as their number one development priority. The Skills Toolkit can help you build these skills, as well as offering short courses on networking, communication, personal development and wellbeing.
It can also help you refresh your knowledge on basic digital skills, such as using office programs like Microsoft Word or Excel.
