Looking to learn a new skill this Halloween? Why not treat yourself?
Luckily, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to get great deals. There are discounts on hundreds of courses right across reed.co.uk right now, including everything from professional qualifications through to courses that add to your hobbies.
If you’re interested in adding to your skillset, here are three of the hottest courses on reed.co.uk this October:
Web Designer package
Working exclusively with CIW, e-Careers have put together the perfect package for anyone looking to get into web design.
Building up from the basics and covering web design fundamentals such as site development and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), this course provides everything needed to start a successful career as a Web Designer from scratch.
All learning is done online, and once completed will provide you with two qualifications – CIW Site Design Associate and CIW Web Design Specialist. Both of which could come in handy when the perennial family gathering favourite, ‘So what are you doing these days?’, rears its hopeful head come Christmastime.
You’re welcome, internet.
What do I need? No previous experience or qualifications are necessary in order to get started.
How long will it last? Around a year (part-time, at your own pace)
Perfect for: People who hate how this web page looks.
Want a career as a solicitor or barrister? It’s never too late.
All without completing an undergraduate degree in law.
And unlike other universities, where you study all of your modules and complete the exams at the end, their GDL is modular. This means that you complete the exam at the end each semester while the information is still fresh in your mind.
It’s the perfect choice for anyone looking for a conversion course. Especially if you’re on a tight budget – with payment options available in anywhere from one to ten instalments.
Still not convinced? Notable University of Law alumni include Cherie Blair, Archbishop of Wales John Davies, and Harvard Professor Jacqueline Bhabha.
Who, at the very least, are probably slightly cooler than anyone you met in halls.
What do I need? A degree in any subject (minimum 2:2).
How long will it last? 21 months.
Perfect for: People who want to loudly object to things (and be able to back it up).
CACHE Level 3
There is no greater gift you can give than the gift of learning*.
If you’ve always thought about helping children reach their potential, here’s your chance to make a difference.
With the CACHE Level 3 Teaching Assistant qualification, you study to work as a Teaching Assistant or Learning Support Assistant and give young people the extra attention they need to have a great start in life.
Becoming a TA is one of the most highly-rewarding and fulfilling careers there is. If it sounds like something you’d be passionate about, get in touch today.
It’s time to go back to school (and, you know, get paid for it)…
What do I need? Excellent communication and motivational skills, as well as a desire to make a difference.
How long will it last? 80 hours (ish).
Perfect for: People who wanted to change lives (see also: have summers off).
*Warning: to avoid disappointment around Christmas, do not take this literally.
