It’s An Introduction To Formal Learning
A lack of discipline and inability to deal with the workload causes many students to drop out in their first year of university. As short courses are introductory, building onto formal qualifications, students can adjust to higher learning slowly. They can assess how well they cope and decide if they want to study further. A valuable course school-goers can start with is the Facilitator Course offered by Assessment College. This course focuses on how to confidently present information or learning topics to other people in a variety of ways. It further promotes skills for problem-solving, working in teams, organising and managing oneself, collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information, communicate effectively using visual, mathematical and/or language skills and how to use science and technology in learning. These skills are all very valuable to any employer.
You Could Discover Another Career Path
You might be determined to pursue a specific career because it offers high-earnings, or it seems to be in demand. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll be well suited to it and will want to do it forever. By taking a short course, you might encounter a field you never knew even existed. In this way, you become aware and even passionate about an industry based on what it’s actually like and not what you decided it would be like in school.
It Can Support Diverse Careers
As mentioned before, short courses can give you insight into careers you might not have considered. They can also help you build a generic portfolio of knowledge and skills, which are valuable qualities in the job market. Potential employers choose candidates that are constantly learning, self-discipline and self-motivation or who possess diverse knowledge.
