In times like these – a constant state of uncertainty – it can be difficult to predict what next week will bring, let alone the next career move.

The doom and gloom surrounding Covid-19 is impacting the lives and livelihoods of everyone, but with the right planning in place, now could just be the very best time to take action and map out how you can thrive in the workplace when normality resumes…and eventually, it will.

Whilst your career may or may not be at the forefront of your mind at the moment depending on your individual circumstances. For most, however it is a fact of life that needs to be managed both for now and for when we emerge from the current situation.

With all of us now in lock down at home, the world of online learning is there for the taking – just as it was before – but now with greater time at our disposal, taking deliberate action rather than just ‘knowing’ about online courses could go some way to squashing anxieties surrounding jobs and career steps, and help you to take back control of your future.

Early Years and Care

If you’re in the early years or care sectors and may not be at work currently, or have had hours reduced since Covid-19, upskilling your knowledge will not only improve your career prospects over the long term, but will help with mindset too.

Online distance learning is flexible, can be done in your own time and enables you to gain qualifications at the end. But with a myriad of courses readily available, where is best to start?

The courses

Avail Learning Academy offers quality, flexible and cost-effective e-learning solutions to aid the development of a well-led, motivated and highly-skilled workforce.

Developed and aligned to legislative and regulatory requirements to drive quality, the courses are all just 60 minutes in duration and designed to inspire, innovate and motivate individuals, underpinned by excellence and best practice, always.

During these strange times that we’re all living through at the moment – and amidst of all of the drawbacks – it’s giving us greater time to take stock and do the activities that we perhaps didn’t ever have the time to do before.

In addition to using your time to assess your strengths, abilities and accomplishments over the last year, why not review your resume, update your LinkedIn, close skill gaps via our e-learning courses and even, practice interviewing via video.

Being in quarantine does not mean that you have to shut off from learning or stop growing new opportunities.

We have the internet and the world at the touch of our buttons, use the time wisely to ensure that when we do all emerge from the pandemic of Covid-19, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’ve done your best to upskill and learn as much as you can so that you’re ready to spring back into the workplace knowing much more than you did do previously.
