It’s easier than ever to upskill from the comfort of your own home.
The pandemic has led to a surge of people taking to sites like Skillshare and Linkedin Learning to try a new hobby, or to add another string to their bow to get ahead at work.
New skills can be a great way to create different income streams - if you are good at crafting, you can sell the things you make online, and provide your customers with a bespoke product available nowhere else.
If you learn a skill that a lot of employers need but find hard to find, you could be on your way to a promotion, or to a new job that opens up new horizons that were not possible before.
Over the next month, we will be exploring a whole bunch of possibilities that are open to you with online learning - including fun hobbies and crafts, as well as skills that can come in useful in the professional world.
In the meantime, explore Skillshare - a site that has thousands of online classes taught by experts. There’s a free trial when you sign up - here’s the link!
