New year, new career

Every January the ‘New Year, New Me’ hype takes over. People begin setting goals for what they want to achieve this year, from focussing more on health and fitness or taking up a new hobby.

But one set of goals often lost in the hype is career goals. So, whilst you sit and contemplate what you want to achieve in 2023, why not consider where you see your career in five years?

We spend over a third of our lives in the workplace, so you must enjoy your job.

If you’re considering a career change, it can be quite overwhelming. Where do I start? Who can I talk to? I don’t know what I want to do. These might be some of the questions swirling around your mind.

Before jumping into a new career, there are some things to consider.

1. Consider the reason you are looking for a change

Maybe you’re not passionate about your current job anymore, maybe you want to move up the ladder – but there is no room for development, or maybe you have got enough out of your current role and need a new challenge.


2. Identify your skills!

Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses will help you find a career path that suits you! We can help with this; our team can discuss your skills and experience and work with you to identify a career path that matches you!

3. Give your CV a makeover!

First impressions count! Your CV is the first impression a potential employer gets of you, so you need to showcase your experience and skills. We offer pre-employability training as part of all our courses. We can help you create a stand-out CV and even give advice on how to impress at interviews!

Now you have set the foundations to kick-start your new career, it’s time to act – that is where we can help. Most of our courses will cost you nothing to complete (other than your time). If you earn less than £21,225 a year and live in the Liverpool City Region, you are eligible. You could even get access to one of our free courses if you earn over this amount!

Unsure of whether you meet the requirements? Not to worry, our team can discuss your circumstance and let you know what free courses you can access!

We have a course to suit everyone, from Barbering to Health & Social Care to Hospitality. Some of our courses even have a guaranteed interview with an employer at the end! Great, right?

Don’t wait for 2024 to roll around before making a change. Act today and start working towards a new career.
