Short courses are practical, convenient and can really ramp up that resume.

For those of us for whom our university degrees are getting a little dated, who never went to Uni and jumped straight into the workforce, or who have taken a “career break”, short courses are ideal for brushing up on skills.

While obviously not as solid as a degree, short courses keep the mind sharp and active, and open up new windows and opportunity when it comes to thinking about your career.
They show potential employers you are motivated, keen to learn and sharp. They show current employers you are not content to rest on your laurels, and that you see continual improvement as a priority.

Short courses are also convenient for those who simply don’t have the time, or the inclination, to commit to a longer degree or TAFE course. They often offer the option to learn by correspondence, online learning or require just one evening or afternoon a week.

Aside from the career advantages short courses can offer, they are also perfect for people who are at home: carers, stay-at-home parents and even retirees can really benefit from short courses in a range of ways.

Keeping the mind active is just as important as keeping the body active, and learning new things. Testing yourself, can be so rewarding for those who might feel bogged down in their day to day obligations.

As a working mother who is involved in the recruitment industry, I have no doubt of the value of short courses. Those who have completed short courses to brush up their skills at work show self-discipline, drive and the desire to do well. Those who have completed short courses in fields unrelated to their careers show an open and interested mind, an enthusiastic attitude and a lust for life.

What employer wouldn’t want these attributes in their employees?

Short courses can also benefit those who work for themselves and are self employed. Working every day on the same tasks, small business owners run the risk of their ideas getting tired, their minds uninspired.

A short course, which may offer new ideas and skills, can really fire up the mind and inspire greater business success.
