Selling yourself

How often do you take time to reflect on your career or to consider, plan and manage your future career development? What barriers are stopping you achieving your goals?

We have a range of learning programmes that can help support you with planning and achieving your goals. It may be useful to identify the knowledge and skills that you already have and identify any gaps in competences that need to be filled to reach those goals. You may benefit from working through some of our guides to help you feel more in control and achieve more of what you want.

Learning levels explained

We recognise that people have different learning needs. Some of our programmes contain core learning while others deliver more complex learning that is only required to support certain roles. We have three categories of learning (1,2,3) and have allocated each programme to an appropriate category.

Core learning. Builds on limited knowledge. Some background reading may be required.

Application of knowledge. Assumes prior learning.

Supporting specialisms. We may not be the provider and will signpost you to other learning providers.

Learning programmes from other providers which complement your learning.
