The top courses to help you get hired September 2018

Wish you could learn something new? Stop putting it off.   

No matter what subject or career you’re interested in, there’s a course on to suit you. So whether you’ve always wanted to re-sit your GCSEs or A-levels, or you’re just looking to take the next step up in your day job, you’re never too old to get back into education.

To help you go back to school this September, here are three of the top courses you could be starting right now:



Need a new career direction? Find it on Amazon.

Amazon Web Services, otherwise known as AWS, is part of the Amazon infrastructure – and offers in-demand cloud computing platforms to businesses and individuals across the globe.

With the Cloud, companies no longer need to set up their own servers, which often come at a great expense. Instead, they can utilise servers across the Cloud to deliver their results much faster (and cheaper) than they’ve ever done before.

It’s also created jobs. A lot of jobs, in fact – with AWS professionals needed to ensure the whole process runs smoothly. Which brings us straight back to this course.

Run by 360 GSP, one of the UK’s leading tech course providers, this AWS Solutions Architect course is streamed live nationwide, and will cover all the key cloud computing fundamentals.

Aside from hands-on experience with AWS deployment and management services, students will gain everything from knowledge of best practices for building AWS applications, through to an understanding of key security features.

Once completed, you’ll be fully AWS certified. Which, for one, looks great on your CV.

But it’ll also enable you to apply for positions right away – with the average AWS Solutions Architect earning a salary of around £60,000.

What do I need? There are no formal requirements (although a general knowledge of AWS may be beneficial).

How long will it take? Six days (part-time).

Perfect for: People who have their head in the Cloud.

Digital Marketing

Looking to build more dynamic display ads? Need to improve your paid search? Just want to understand where Google rankings actually come from?

We’ve got you covered.

OK, so we can’t promise to shed light on every one of Google’s algorithm updates. But with this Digital Marketing diploma, you’ll have the next best thing.

Made up of modules consisting of all the core digital marketing concepts, you’ll learn fundamentals from social media marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO), through to paid search, email marketing, video advertising and more.

Upon successful completion of your course, which is on offer for both full-time (eight day) and part-time (six month) students, you’ll obtain a Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing from the Digital Marketing Institute – pretty much the industry standard when it comes to certifications.

So whether you’re a complete beginner, or you’re looking to take the next step in your marketing career, you’ll be able to hit your targets.

And did we mention a range of finance options are available to help keep studying well within your budget?


What do I need? An active interest in all things digital.

How long will it take? Eight days (full-time), or six months (par-time).

Perfect for: People who have already shared this on Snapchat.

Business Intelligence

Sometimes, to achieve true intelligence you just need to visualise it.

Luckily, that’s where Power BI comes in.

Created by Microsoft, the industry-leading business analysis tool helps companies across the UK map out their data and make it easier to digest. Whether it’s by creating dashboards that pull numbers in real-time or by sketching out graphs to help break down statistics.

This comprehensive Power BI course will help you get-to-grips with the programme and gain practical experience, as well as preparing you to work with data on a daily basis.

It’s perfect for anyone looking for a full-time role in analytics. But even if you just want to provide some extra insights in your current position and need a better tool for the job, you’re covered too.

And the best part is, it won’t even take a long time to get started. In fact, the course lasts just three days – meaning you’ll have an in-depth understanding of complex data analysis (and a new career door opened) in little more than one weekend.

Classes are also streamed online, nationwide. So no matter where you are, you’ll be able to learn.

Because intelligence doesn’t need to be hard work…

What do I need? A basic knowledge of databases and reporting (as well as key business principles, such as revenue and profitability).

How long will it take? Three days (full-time).

Perfect for: People who want to make their numbers look better.
