Once you have decided to improve your skills, you will need to think about what course you'd like to do. There are several things to consider: subject, level, place of learning, and how much time you have.
How to choose
Choosing a course depends on several factors. First, where are you now? Are you doing a job you enjoy, but want to progress in? Or are you looking for a new career? Look into a few possibilities before making your decision. You'll also need to think about how to pay for your course. You might be able to get help with funding, depending on your circumstances. You might also be able to learn while you're at work.
