Mental Health

It’s estimated that every week, one in six adults experience a common mental health problem.

Whilst the number isn’t particularly surprising, it does highlight the impact that the right mental care could have on millions of people’s lives. And, as 13-19 May is Mental Health Week, now just might be the perfect time to become part of the solution.

This LEVEL 2 Certificate in Understanding Children & Young People’s Mental Health course will enable you to gain a recognised (RQF) qualification to support those with mental health difficulties.

Not only is it ideal for anyone already working with vulnerable young people as part of their day jobs, such as teachers or other school staff members, it’s equally valuable for those looking to move into the industry and find their first roles.

Anyone over 16 is eligible to start studying. All it takes is the right amount of patience, a passion for changing lives, and access to a computer.

And with 20% off the RRP all throughout May, and flexible payment options on offer, there’s really never been a better time to join the conversation.

Because it really is time for change.

What do I need? A desire to help young people struggling with their mental health.

Excel Bootcamp

Looking for a course you’d really Excel at (and other Office-based puns)? We’ve got this.

We all know Excel is an essential tool for many businesses. Whether it’s used to map out data, or simply to automate tasks and simplify working with vast amounts of complex data.

The problem is, if you’re not up-to-speed on your acronyms, using the platform can be a pretty intimidating experience – which is exactly where this course comes in.

This comprehensive Microsoft Excel Bootcamp, offered by MS Office pros Excel with Business, covers all of the absolute fundamentals you need to make your spreadsheets stand out.

Want to use advanced graphs in minutes instead of wasting hours trying to figure them out? No problem. Want to increase interactivity by automating your spreadsheets with macros and VBA? You’re covered.

Just need to understand what the hell a VLOOKUP is? They’ll do that too.

All in all, you’ll get four courses in the best-selling bundle. All for the bargain price of just £39.

Maybe there really is a formula for success?

What do I need? Access to Microsoft Excel is fairly important.

How long will it take? 65 hours.

Perfect for: People who want to Pivot.

*Spoiler: it’s all of them.
