How to Improve Your Employability – Try Out These Free Courses…

We are all aware that one of the main ways to either improve our employment prospects or simply boost our skills and knowledge is to do a course of some type.

Such courses are usually held at local colleges or universities and can quite often have hefty fees, even if you are entitled to concessionary discounts. However, there are also quite a number of courses that can be undertaken online, in the comfort of your own home and best of all for FREE! So, today we thought we would highlight just a few of the places where you can do just that.

Happy Learning!


Affiliated to the Open University, OpenLearn is a free online learning site which offers over 600 courses, from introductory to advanced levels.
