  1. Test a Career Path

  1. Enhance your Current Career

A short course will teach you work-related skills that you will be able to use to build your career by learning specialised skills related to your profession and keep up to date with the latest developments in your profession.  Enhancing your skills could also allow you to qualify for an increase in salary or even a promotion.

  1. Kick-Start your Learning

Short courses are a perfect way to start your learning process, allowing you to engage in subjects while you decide if is the right path for you.  Short programmes provide you with modules that can sometimes be used as credits if you do want to continue learning and purse that diploma or degree.
