Centre for Lifelong Learning

Transferable Skills for Work courses

Following the success of three new Microcredential courses launched in February 2022, the Centre for Lifelong Learning are offering more Transferable Skills for Work courses this June, fully funded by the Scottish Funding Council.

The courses have been designed specifically to support adults who may be looking to re-enter the workforce, are facing redundancy, considering a career change or have simply identified a skills gap in their current job. Each course focuses on developing transferable skills for work including identifying and adapting your skills, presentation skills and effective listening skills.

New for June 2022, there are also opportunities available in Beginners Italian, Spanish and Gaelic, as well as an online Introduction to Novel Writing for budding writers.

The courses are led by expert tutors and will take place over various dates from June onwards giving students the chance to improve their skills and interact with other like-minded individuals this summer.

Each course is worth 10 credits at SCQF Level 7. Completion of all three courses would result in a 30 credit Open Studies Certificate (subject to Senate approval).
