What you get From a Short Course

Much like the name suggests, short courses are short. However they are packed with great opportunities. No one wants to read an endless list of why they should enrol in a course. That’s why we’ve collected the top four things you will get from studying a short course. 

  1. Gain New Skills in a Short Period of Time 
  2. Improve Current Skills 
  3. Turn a Hobby Into a Career
  4. Kickstart Your Learning 

Gain new Skills in a Short Period of Time 

A short course is meant to be done within a few months. The great thing about this is that you get exactly what you need and nothing extra. Once completed, you can rest assured that you’ll walk away with what the skills need. 

Improve Current Skills 

Stuck working in the same position for a while? A short course can help you out. You can upgrade your current skills with these courses. Once you graduate, you’ll be able to add it to your resume and apply for a higher position

Turn a Hobby Into a Career

There must be something you enjoy doing in your spare time. With a short course, your fun hobby can be turned into a career opportunity. Now you’ll be able to have an extra income while having fun. 

Kickstart Your Learning 

Studying isn’t for everyone, but much like a double-edged sword, you won’t know if it’s for you without trying it first. Luckily for you, with a short course you can test the waters without wasting too much of your time if you don’t enjoy it. 

Short Courses Offered by Skills Academy 

Looking for short courses so you can get into those benefits? We have them right here. That’s right, you don’t even have to look far for them. Remember, all our courses are done through distance learning, but those are benefits we’ll get into a little later. 

Benefits of Doing Distance Learning Courses 

Remember those distance learning benefits we mentioned earlier? Well here we unload them. Those short courses are great. That’s why we have benefits that are just as great to go with them. Just take a look: 

Studying from home: With us you can look forward to studying from the comfort of your home. No travelling expenses and you don’t have to worry about sitting in a crowded classroom. 

Study materials delivered: Looking for your textbooks can be off putting. That’s why we deliver all your course materials including your study guides.  

Exclusive study groups: Just because you aren’t in a physical classroom doesn’t mean you are alone. We have exclusive study groups where you can chat to fellow students. 

Online tutors: Not only do you have study groups but you also have access to online tutors to help you whenever you get stuck.  

Easy access courses: Here at Skills Academy we want you to be able to access our courses, that’s why we have easy entry requirements. 

What you Need to Enrol 

All you need to enrol in our short courses is to be able to read and write in English. It doesn’t get easier than that. Wait, but it does. You register from home and it only takes five minutes.
