It’s April, and you know what that means?
Courses that’ll pay you to get qualified. OK, not really. But with 60,000 skills-boosting courses to choose from on reed.co.uk this month, what you do get from studying will be even better. No (April) foolin’.
Here are the six of the best courses in three key industries that are in need of qualified staff right now:
Project management courses
If you’re looking for opportunities in a variety of fields – look no further than project management.
Not only are there unlimited types of projects you could work on, there are also a number of industries you could utilise your skills in. That means that once qualified, you could work in anything from marketing, IT, and financial services, right through to construction, engineering, and legal.
And with over 15,000 project management jobs advertised on reed.co.uk in 2020 alone*, there’s never been a better time to get qualified.
Perfect for: People who can manage anything (and anyone).
Top courses: The PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Course with Exams and the PRINCE2® Foundation & Agile® Practitioner Course with Exams from Balance Global.
This course bundle will provide you with a comprehensive knowledge of PRINCE2®; the de facto project management standard. It takes 6 months to complete, and once certified, you’ll be able to apply PRINCE2® principles in any industry, to a project of any size.
This package is the perfect choice for anyone looking to take projects and working practices to new levels of success. It covers the most common agile approaches and techniques, including SCRUM, Kanban, and Lean, and allows you to focus on both management and delivery.
Change management courses
As a result of COVID19 and Brexit, change is more prevalent than ever – both in a business capacity and in our everyday working lives.
In order to function effectively, companies and individuals are having to respond to ‘the new normal’ accordingly, adapting their internal processes, team structures, technology, organisational goals, and more.
This means there’s a greater demand for qualified Change Managers and Project Managers, who are able to ensure smooth transitions for employers and employees.
Perfect for: People who want to change.
Top courses: The Change Management® Foundation & Practitioner Course and the Change Management® Foundation & Practitioner Course with Exams from Balance Global.
This Change Management® bundle will teach you how to prepare for and manage the impact of change in a business. It contains units on creating project business cases, handling risk, creating vision statements, communicating and implementing change initiatives, and much more.
If you’re looking for a bundle with exams included – this is the course for you. Not only will it teach you the fundamentals of Change Management® at Foundation and Practitioner level, it also allows you to take both exams – included in the price.
IT and tech professionals are becoming increasingly important in 2021, and here’s why:
With many of us now working from home, companies and individuals are extremely reliant on cloud technology and remote working tools. As a result, jobs are rising in this area. Not just in cloud computing, but also in IT support, service desk management, and anything else employees rely on to work from home effectively.
The emergence of WFH culture also means that our personal data is spending a lot of time in cyberspace; making it more prone to attack from cyber criminals, and ultimately increasing the demand for network security professionals.
Perfect for: People who want to be in-demand.
Top courses: The ITIL® 4 Foundation Course with Exam and the CompTIA-IT Certification Career Advancement Bundle from Balance Global.
Providing a flexible foundation for the optimisation of service management operating models, this ITIL® 4 course is a one stop shop triage for corporate IT problems and services.
