Why Complete a Pre-Employment training Course?

31st October, 2018

At Futures, we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of ways to boost your skills and make the journey into employment easier, including our short pre-employment courses. These are tailored to suit a range of industries and the qualifications included differ depending on the type of job or employment you’re looking for.

There are many great reasons to complete a pre-employment course – we’re sure you’ll have your own reasons for getting in touch, but here are three to get you started:

1. It’s a good talking point in interviews

If you are out of work, or are looking for a change in career after being made redundant, completing a set of sought-after qualifications can give you plenty to talk about during job interviews. Explaining how you have developed your skillset also shows the employer that you have been proactively improving your abilities whilst searching for work.

2. You can be confident in your knowledge

No matter what sector you have worked in, it can be easy to feel like things are moving on without you. Employers are often looking for people with up-to-date knowledge – and it can be hard to keep up, especially if you have been out of work, or are looking to move into a new industry altogether.

Pre-employment courses polish your existing knowledge and fill any gaps you may have, so that you are fully prepared to apply for your dream job

3. You can get help with funding

Accessing training can be pricey, and that can leave you locked out of learning new skills. However, the pre-employment courses available through Futures for Business are eligible for funding through the Adult Education Budget, meaning that you boost your skills, without worrying about the financial implications of doing so.

Don't just take our word for it...
