Thanks to its flexibility, you can pretty much do online training at anytime. But a lot of people who have been furloughed have been asking if they can do online training during furlough. The simple answer to this is yes! What better time to do online training to upskill your abilities and improve your CV than when you don’t have to be at work fulfilling your job?
There is a massive range of courses online available now, from A-Levels through to BTECs and other Professional Diplomas, so you really do have the pick of the crop when you come to decide the type of online training you want to do during furlough.
What are the Best Courses to Study during Furlough?
When considering and choosing courses, be sure to have a clear idea of what you want to achieve and the timeline. For example, there is no point in opting for studying A-Levels, if you want to complete the course and gain the qualification within a few weeks, as with A-Levels, that’s just not possible. But it would be possible with a Short Course or even with a Diploma (depending on your knowledge in the field already).
Take a look at your current CV and experience, are you looking to get a promotion when you return to work? Or are you looking to work within a different department of the company? Once you have the answer to these questions, then you can start pairing your course choices with your upskilling requirements.
