No matter what stage you are at in your career, you’re never too advanced to learn and progress. Whether that progression is in your current career or a completely new industry, career training is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional study.
The qualifications are designed with the practicalities of the job in mind, working with employers in a variety of sectors to create a worthwhile course that combines education and training to develop key skills and knowledge.
Career training is ideal for everyone; whether looking to leave school or higher education and want to get some more practical training, or you’re returning to work after a career break, or even just want to take that next step in your career journey.
Here are 3 key ways in which career training can help you to progress your career:
1.You can excel in something
Traditional education is designed to help you to get an overall understanding of a particular topic, but it doesn’t necessarily hone any skills in more specific areas. Career training courses are more focused, meaning you choose the area(s) you want to excel in based on the job you’re aiming for and the course goes into greater detail, offering more practical skills and knowledge that suit the role you want.
2.The qualifications are industry recognised and sought after
Because the qualifications have been created with employers in mind, industries recognise the qualifications and favour candidates with career training. Many employers even fund the development of their employees through career training, as they see the vast benefits that the courses offer.
3.Skip gaining years of experience
The nature of the career training qualifications is that they offer you the skills and knowledge that would only otherwise be gained through years of experience or traditional study. So, by gaining a career training qualification, you can skip ahead years in your career and walk into a role that wouldn’t have previously been an option for you without experience. Even without any experience in the particular industry you want to progress in, you can still skip the entry level positions and progress quickly through the ranks with the help of career training.
