Make a change to a more fulfilling career path

The idea of a job for life has long gone. Nowadays it is widely accepted that different professions suit us at various points throughout our lives. In fact, our research shows that 71% of people have moved into a new career at least once, so if you’re considering this option then you’re certainly in good company.

There are many reasons why you may choose to change career, ranging from the desire to earn more money to a preference for flexible working hours or the ability to work from home. You may even be experiencing a fundamental life change, such as leaving the armed forces, in which case you will have some big decisions to make concerning your professional future.

Gain the skills you need

It's likely that you will already have some transferable skills that will ease the transition to your chosen role. However, you might need to acquire additional knowledge in order to stimulate that change.

That’s where a professional qualification can really help, by developing practical skills that are of real value in the workplace. Gaining a recognised accreditation is also a great way of overcoming a lack of experience, showing a new employer you have what it takes to be a success in your new career.

Continue working while you learn

With distance learning, there’s no need to make a leap into the unknown - you can stay in your existing job while training for your next career move. By using your personal time to gain your new qualification, you will be in the perfect position to make a change at a time that suits you best.
