Is this your year? The year of change, growth, challenge and success?


Whether you are seeking a career change, boost old skills or just try something completely new,




According to research carried out by Guardian. “increasing numbers of people are using the time to build their skillset, with an upsurge in enrolments on online learning platforms “

Coursera, for instance, has seen an eightfold increase in enrolments for social science, personal development, arts and humanities courses since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. “It’s unprecedented,” says the company’s chief product officer, Shravan Goli. (In late March, its Science of Well Being course saw 500,000 new enrolments in a single weekend.)”


Advantages of online learning

Online learning offers many benefits and advantages of flexibility as educational institutions and students increasingly recognise that when it comes to learning, one size often doesn’t always fit all. Students will often devote differing amounts of time to a topic to fully understand it. And learning online has a great advantage of allowing learners to study at their own pace, as we all learn in different ways and at different rates. Adult learners in particular will hold a wide range of pre-existing knowledge and skills from earlier studies. And this is a strength that adaptable online courses can help learners use to their advantage.

When it comes to seeking new employment, online learning has great benefits in that you can train around your current employment commitments and so not affect your current work or finances from work.


Upskilling is becoming increasingly important simply because technology changes so fast. An increasing number of people are also choosing to progress mid-career as well as develop their skills later in life. This is a great move in an uncertain economy and it allows people to merge new found skills as well to differentiate themselves from the competition.

It also allows you to brush up on skills that you may have once had but need to remind yourself of without necessarily needing to take time off of work or other commitments.

How to stay motivated?

During this difficult time, you may find yourself out of routine and it can be hard to find the motivation to stick to your new hobby or continue the momentum you initially had when you set out to start your new course.
There are many ways to stay motivated whilst you study. Such as treating your new course like a physical classroom that you have to attend and participate in, complete the tasks,reward yourself, take regular breaks or even team up with a family member or friend virtually that you feel would also benefit from the online class.
