Transferable Skills for Work courses

Following the success of the Upskilling courses offered earlier this year, with over 100 students taking part, CLL are now offering three further courses - fully funded by the Scottish Funding Council.

These courses are led by three of CLL’s very experienced tutors and are specifically designed to support adults who are looking to re-enter the workforce, facing redundancy or are considering a career change in mid-late career.

The courses will focus on developing a range of specific transferable skills for work including identifying and adapting your current skills, building confidence and developing effective listening skills.

Clare, 62, who was a student on the ‘Confidence Building and Re-Building in mid-late career’ course back in March this year, recently shared her success:

 “I took part in the Confidence Building course and found it gave me such a good confidence boost to make the best use of the skills I have developed in the past. I just secured a job and I believe the course was key to that success”

Confidence Building and Re-Building in mid-late career will begin on Monday 7th November 2022 online via Zoom for 4 weeks every Monday and Wednesday from 5.30pm – 7.30pm.

Effective Listening Skills will launch online in February 2023 on a Monday evening for 8 weeks. Identifying and Adapting Your Skills in mid-late career will also be running from February, but for the first time this course will run face-to-face on campus every Tuesday morning for 8 weeks.
